Question about GPR
Last weekend I was washing my 07 GPR and I noticed that on the left side, there is a rectangular hole below the fairing (please look at red circle in the photo). In the same place at right side, the hole has a plastic cover with a lot of small holes. Have I missed this cover on the left side or this hole is normal??
Thanks in advance. I am sorry for my poor English.
Best regards from Brazil.....Fernando

Its normal - Some open up the other side for airflow.

there check my thread, I have some pictures of my ski without those cowels.. big gold pieces on the side of the ski. There are like bucket things that hand on the sides, and they have holes in them.. then on the inside of the ski there are big air duct tubes that are like cooling tubes, so that when you ride air goes through them, and into the duct tubes then the air goes down by the hot engine....
if that makes sense to help cool the engine...

Thanks guys.... I thought that the left cowel was missing. May I have trouble when a wave hit the front of the ski and the water goes inside that hole?

i guess there is a chance of water going into them.. but there is a box that sticks out of the side of the ski.. that I believe is made, so that incase water got in there it wouldn't just go into the hull....
