Curious if anyone running an open clutch cover with the stock pressure plate has some pics?

Was thinking about getting this cover:

http://store.proitalia.com/efx4600.html

It looks like the least likely candidate to ingest some part of my gear given its location relative to the footpegs on the Hyper, and figured it's not open enough to really bother with a funky pressure plate, just new caps and springs.

I'm no expert, but aren't the ones you install aftermarket designed to move the air around the clutch?
I've wondered about things getting into the open styles. Especially my little ones finges:eek:

The stock plate is fine. the stock springs aren't stainless and will rust from what I understand.

I had an AF plate but when I went to mount a gold spyder retainer, it wouldn't fit. The stock springs will rust and look horrible. So, you will at least need some Stainless springs and retainers. Now I use the stock plate with SS springs and the gold spyder retainer.

The stock springs will rust, but stainless springs and caps are cheap. Ducati Omaha does powder coated stock pressure plates (red/gold/black) for like $50 exchange with yours. Springs/caps/plate....all for like $80??? Looks great under the open cover.
