if it has been put on with silicone  then it will come off all right . ( just  the usual de-badging technique of running a line of dental floss behind it will cut the silicone  and remove the cover )
 
But if it is on with Sikaflex  then you are screwed  it is the gods own nightmare to remove ( having tried to peel off carbon fiber crash protectors on my last bike I know.  If it is on with Sikaflex then you will most likely destroy the carbon in the process.
 
give it a go and see what happens .

if dental floss doesn't work get a bit of that packing strip that holds parcels together the thick plastic stuff pull a strand off that and try cutting through the glue
