I can't  say for sure, but looking at the image here at World of Triumph  there don't appear to be
a set of nuts, bolts or clips etc, for each letter, so I imagine that they are stuck on  :169:

Mine are stuck on. I have removed this type of lettering in the past by using a low heat source such as a hair dryer. You can also use dental floss or something similar and perform a sawing motion behind the letter to remove it. 3M makes a great two sided body tape to use when/if you want to reapply them.

An alternative to dental floss is prising off with a credit card!

If you don't mind me asking, why do you need to remove it?
