I just don't want anything "stuck" to the outside of my engine, as much as I ride - it'd never last.
BTW with the undercoating and the flower nut, that's one advantage of a soft, spray-on coating - coat the inside of the cover as thick as ya like and even if something contacts it, it "wears away" leaving a perfect fit w/o hurting anything, any residue has no effect (doesn't manage to get into the clutch). If yer picky - a lil acetone and a toothbrush will clean up the "smear" on the flower nut.
I used the spray on undercoating and i gotta say it is a big improvement. Easy chaep, and you can really put it on thick. Gotta get 3M tho. then i like to spray dupli color truck bed liner on the outside. nice look with the texture very durable, and it says it reduces sound, so i figure reduceing it from both sides is better, seems to be really quiet now.
