    Plastic engine/spark plug cover?

    I see alot of pics here where the cover is off some ski`s and not others. Is there a reason why there is no plastic cover on the head cover that covers the spark plugs???
    is there any benefit to this? does it let heat dissipate better?...PR...

    Andy I thought it would allow better air circulation and quicker inspection. I leave mine off and have had no problems.

    there's nothing to be gained by it, a plastic cover isn't going to give you any rpms or any speed or any heat dissipation that the ass of the seat or guages would ever notice

    they leave it off bc it's in the way... alot of people are constantly pulling plugs, constantly tinkering with fuel controllers, constantly pulling the intake manifolds and wrenching... so why have unnessary parts under the seat... it's just in the way, another thing to have to pull out of the way when your tuning and troubleshooting.
