    R1100RT fairing vents

    When I had my 2000 R1100RT apart to replace the fork seals, I discovered the flaps that open and close the fairing vents. Mine were open and while riding hot air [from the oil cooler?] comes out. Is this to get some hot air to the rider on cold days? I never really felt the air coming from the vents. I didn't notice much difference with them closed either. Will it run cooler with the vents open?

    The truth is, they do just about nothing. I ride all year as long as the roads are safe. Heated grips, heated gloves.
