A number of owners have removed theirs - a previous owner removed them on mine. It won't wobble then.

I removed both mine, the extra visibility is totally worth it

 

plus I can tilt the drivers seat back a bit and get more headroom (a problem with a helmet on)

The front section should be secured by 2 or 3 nuts to the roll bar bracket (so no way to move) and the rear hard plastic cover should be attached by velcro.

Sikaflex or tigerseal will hold it in place, but as above I got rid of mine

cheers for replies all

 

are there any pictures of these having been removed please

There are a few people who have actually angle grinded off the ‘axe heads’ completely. This was a drastic step to far for me with unknown safety implications so I opted to go half way and did this neat solution -

The fronts are removed allowing the seat to recline slightly further and for you not to risk hitting your head on the plastic. I then filled and skimmed the GRP cut out and upholstered the whole roll bar cover along with axe heads. To finish it all off there are also 3 powerful interior LED spot lights dotted along the top.
