Should I remove my front rotor covers or not?

Well some say to take them off as they bend into the rotor real easy and they really don't block much mud on the trail. If you leave them on then you will be bending them back off the rotors almost any time you hit the trail. Regardless mine are still on, and I know the sound that a mud shield makes scrapping a rotor from a mile away, and I have "fixed" them on the trail for others a few times.

Jim yes forever. All they seem to do is collect mud or trap rocks. I would be able to clean the calipers easier.
Mike I have bent them back many times & I have everything apart & it would be easy to remove now. Are there any drawbacks?

I know Jimmy took them off his 110 that he had in the UK, he had no problems.
