Re: Do covers cause scratches?
like the OP, I too have the OEM R6 Yamaha cover (model 2017+) and the fit is snug and the material is like polyester. I haven't checked but I don't know if the exhaust area has additional padding so I've been gentle when putting the cover on after riding to make sure it's not touching the exhaust area directly. But back to the fit, I find that the front, especially around the area of the mirrors, is very tight and like some others mentioned I do worry that after constant covering and removal there might be some scratching. It does take some time to put on correctly so currently, the cover is sitting in the trunk of my car, lol. And yes bikes a little dusty just need to find some time to wipe her down.
