1st gen rubber engine cover....needed?

Hey All,

Last time I tore into my engine, I removed the (tattered remnants of) that rubber engine cover and now I notice a lot more heat on my knees and shins.

Question: Have you removed or kept yours? Has the aftermarket improved upon this component? in durability or thermal properties?

I'm thinking of replacing mine.

Do 2nd and 3rd gen also have one?

Removed mine....I haven't noticed any change but it may be because I ride in the heat anyway and in the winter which is really only 50deg or above it is probably welcomed. ....will say this though, I am getting ready to tear into my bike and am so glad I don't deal with it anymore.
