Should I add holes to my Utah skid plate?

If you need cooling down there, buy a fan instead.
I'm not trying to be ignorant or anything. So many posts in this group about problems of overheating and mysterious shock waves propagating through the drive chain into the tranny when riding on the street.
There must be someting wrong with my WR. It starts, idles, runs fine and doesn't boil over.
My $2.59 worth...

This would be for cooling purposes only. Where does it make sense to do?
I only drilled one hole in my Utah Sportcycle skid plate and that was to open up the bottom just a bit to better access the drain bolt. If you're not having overheating problems with your bike then I'd leave it as is.

When it comes time to change my oil, I just take the skid plate off to #1, make it easier to change the oil and #2, to get everything nice and clean under there. Not a whole lot of trouble to go through, ya know??
