I bought high density foam on Amazon and cut them to fit around the forks and fill the hole. It is much quieter and a lot less dirt and rain come up through the hole.
When I first got my 03 FJR I was irritated by the vacuum at my back, always pushing me forward. So I went down into the "fork hole" and removed the large plastic "fork hole" stuffer.
When I got my 07 they had made the "fork hole" stuffer, smaller, and generally rearranged the whole air management system and I wasn't being pushed forward so I left it in there.
When I removed the 03 "fork hole" plastic piece, I did get a lot of grit flying up the fork tube hole, but since I wear a full face helmet and a jacket I never noticed it until I went for a quick test ride one day without my helmet and got "sandblasted".
