It's part of Tech Inspection. All lenses need to be taped over in case the bike meets the tarmac. Instead of shattering, they will stay together and we wont have a lot of glass/plastic all over the track. The same goes with mirrors. They need to be removed or simply taped over as well.

Tape is like stickers, it adds about 5 - 10hp

Proper color choice in tape helps with speed factors as well.
