That rattling you hear when you start her up, that would be your dry clutch. So putting an open cover on it is no issue. I run one in the summer and a closed one in the winter. Before you start pulling bolts get LT Snyders manual and read up on your bike so you don't pull the wrong thing. Not all those bolts that circle the cover actualy hold the cover on only some of them. The others are casing bolts that pass through oversized holes in the clutch cover.

“Merciful Father, I have squandered my days with plans of many things. This was not among them. But at this moment, I beg only to live the next few minutes well. For all we ought to have thought, and have not thought; all we ought to have said, and have not said; all we ought to have done, and have not done; I pray thee God for forgiveness.” Ahmed Ibn Fahdlan
"Now think real hard. You been bird-dogging this township a while now. They wouldn't mind a corpse of you. Now you can luxuriate in a nice jail cell, but if your hand touches metal, I swear by my pretty floral bonnet: I will end you." Capt. Malcolm Reynolds
