dude, take that cover off, it's trapping humidity inside it. if your rotors are rusting, just think about all your engine fasteners and other bolts! motorcycle rotors only rust under fairly extreme conditions because they have a surface coating of brake pad material on them, protecting them from rust. if your's are rusting they're either in a really humid enviroment, or you don't use your front brakes hard enough!

its perfectly natural for surface rust to build up on brake rotors. like pester said, itll wear off in the first ten feet of riding. methinks ill keep the cover on. besides its well ventilated as far as trapping moisture is concerned. its much better than it being rained on.

I don't know about bikes, but I do know that if you keep a car cover on a car when it is parked outside, it definitely is worse than just leaving the car exposed. All the moisture from the bottom rises up and gets trapped. And whether the cover has vents doesn't matter. I've lifted up $300 vented car covers and saw moisture. I would assume that this would be the same for bike covers, but it's just my opinion.:icon_smil

i'll put it this way...my bikes have sat up for months at a time, and not once have they ever built up any form of rust, surface or otherwise. and i don't use a cover in a garage.
