I didn't know about this product from Kury. Is it new? Some thoughts:
- I agree with VJ, in that maybe they couldn't hurt, in terms of keeping a little heat at bay, away from the thighs and legs.
- I wonder if they can catch some wind going toward the center, and then make it easier for your side panels to push outward, and sail down the highway ... unless your barbs and grommets are in top-notch condition (or you've added heat-shrink to a barb or two).
- I also wonder if it's possible to block too much air. That's something I've wondered before, in regard to some of those side-closeouts that are available. I mean, that rear cylinder has to get some airflow around it -- doesn't it? -- even though the 106 is also oil-cooled. That rear jug is the one that H-D shuts down on some models, in low-speed "parade mode," right?
- As Motorbikerx points out, yeah, there's explosions going on down there, so whaddya expect. OTOH, much as I enjoy my XCT, I think my next bike is going to be water-cooled.
