I’ve been looking at the sales photos of my ‘soon to be’ R1200RS (awaiting arrival) and the
small fairing pieces below the cylinder heads (L&R) intrigue me somewhat.

I am wondering what their purpose may be. They are small and their mounting looks semi-detached. Could they be simply cosmetic, perhaps heat shields, or have an aerodynamic role? Has any RS owner removed them?

Any comments would be appreciated thank you, S.

I've seen many guesses. Cosmetic is a good guess.
Not all of the RSs and Rs have them so that tells you they're not needed.

That's a gravel scoop.
