Rain Flap? Really?

6 posts in this topic

As I am perusing the owners manual for my new to me '01YZ, I noticed this;

FLAP

In order to prevent water from entering the carburetor

while the motorcycle is operated in the

rain, attach the accessory flap 1 to the frame

at the rear of the fuel tank.

Really? I have never owned a bike that had a flap available for installation during the rain. Anybody use this flap or have had negative affects if not using it?

Thanks for your knowledge

Troy

All '03 and later models came with it installed. It's supposed to help prevent water from entering the air box by splashing up and back between the tank and seat.
