    Its not only easier to clean but it also doesn't hold the heat down onto the heads or along the fuel rail so less heat soak I guess.

    I have not had the plastic cover on since my first 50 hours when I took it to Jim's Performance when he basically told me it was useless.

    Logic tells me the quicker you can get heat out of the engine compartment the better. The greater the volume of cool air coming in and getting out with as little restriction as possible is a good thing. Notice how on SC motors the entire seat will "pull down" sucking and gasping for air. Not clear why Yamaha engineering hasn't figured out how to get cold air in and hot air out more efficiently without compromising salt and debris.

    BTW...I also have not run with a air filter since that first 50 hours....no harm.

    I do too....salt water won't hurt a thing as long as you have good anti corrosion layer on the engine components. Exception would be if it sat for a long time. Mine doesn't so no big thing.
