    It's not visible like it is on the Oilheads and doesn't cause exactly the same issues..unless your bike takes a long nap or two and it could maybe get contaminated , but never heard of one. Never considered removing them on Our S's.

    I'll assume you don't conform to the idiom which guides many of us.... "If it ain't broke, modify it until it is."

    Oh, been down that path a time or two but now realize it sooner and stop earlier
