    I took all of them off. All they do is trap heat and mud.

    I removed to air housing cover and the maintenance cover let's a ton of heat out. as far as the components getting wet or muddy they get covered with the covers on so it wont hurt anything

    Yea what he said^^. There is some electrical stuff behind the passenger seat but it would get wet and muddy even with the covers on. It was harder to clean with the covers on so I just left them off.
