Do you have to remove the GAS TANK ?

you don't have to remove the gas tank. however, you will have to cut the front-ride cylinder bracket that the airbox is anchored to so that you can reuse it after removing the covers. you'll see what i mean when you actually get in there.

These covers are a composite insulating plastic that serve as heat shields to prevent your knees getting toasted. Other than that, they have no functional purpose, unlike the plastic cover above the drive pulley that directs air flow behind the hot exhaust area of the rear cylinder.

PSA, shorts are not recommended lol

But seriously, maybe I’m just short but my knees has never touched the cylinders


It’s just more aesthetically pleasing with it off

Riding in cold weather I tuck my knees in against the rear cylinder for some welcome warmth. Never gets too hot with those covers left in place that my jeans start to smoke :eek:
