Running without that Rubber insulation, heat mat???

Long story short it didn't go back in.....obviously I will feel more heat but anything else be effected by runneing without it. The black rubber piece that goes over the valve cover, under the throttle boddies etc....primarirly this will be a drag bike. Thanks in advance.

There was a thread a couple weeks ago on this topic. No it won't hurt anything. You probably won't feel much more heat. The purpose of it is to cut the heat down going to the air box and fuel tank. The cooler those items run, the higher the power output. How much? Probably negligible power loss if anything at all.

I may not be perfect, but at least I don't ride a Suzuki.
