Does anyone know the importance of the dull gray looking rear disc brake cover? I want to pull mine off. If you look at the disc without the cover it seems to be a cleaner looking rear end. Cobra shows the rear disc cover off when you view their photo of the Raider with the Swept pipes on it.
How important is it?

I have heard that the disk is a heat shield. Saw a post that showed one off and the guy said he has had no problems with it

The part you are referring to is supposed to be a heat sink. Some have taken that part off; I think it would be a good idea to retain that part in my opinion.

I would suggest retaining it as well. There are a couple of other options though

1 - Performance Edge has them in chrome for you S guys
2 - I'm thinking of painting mine black when I put the new pipes on. It will then match the front rotors as well.
