The biggest benefit I see is the cold air/rain deflection. The fairings have foam bits on the inside to block air and channel it through the rad. If you feel heat, you'll only get a tad, and the rest exits down below. Gen3 got a couple of new openings at the bottom, which will keep your feet warmer in the cooler stuff, and unfortunately, even warmer in the hot stuff. I h aven't had time yet to see how the Gen3 panels go out 20mm, but soon.
Keep yer stick on the ice....
