I've never found that to be the case. My cars have had 3M clear bras fitted to them for years and never had fade lines when removed. The very early 3M clear adhesive used to yellow a little over time but the later ones dont. On top of that the 3M if you use it is "self healing" when it gets scuffed up if you leave it in the sun it will self repair or you can use a heat gun on it and watch the damage fade away. Quite brilliant technology and cheap for the quantities you need on a bike. This is why people with high end sports cars Ferraris etc get them completely clear bra'd before they even drive them off the show room floor.
