Cleaning bugs out of helmet vents?

I have a Shoei X-twelve helmet. Can I take the vents apart without destroying them. I tried pulling on them but they seem like they are glued in place. The bug guts in the vents are disgusting.

I was excited about this bike until I bought my Superduke 1290R. If the quality control is similar to the Superduke then I want no part of the RC390.
