That is pretty much exactly what I did with mine...with the exception that I did four pieces, one in each corner, roughly 1 square inch.

I was concerns about heat too....but for about two years now..no issues either.

I've borrowed a coyote and I own the original giant loop. I have also used the mojavi. All work great, but you need a heat sheild.

You do need to tug hard on the rear clip straps or cut tiny notches.

Got pictures? please share.

Thank you.

For under $12, and 10 minutes, I had made a head light saver, and some spares. Judging from the rock marks in mine, I think it more than paid for itself.
Last of the big spenders. My KLR had the soft headlight adhesive stuff all over the lights and dials so I stuck some of that on the WRR. This avoids the need for velcro ... which saves valuable cents in our cash-constrained economies. :)

i am going to do a Perspex light cover and i'll use four round 1/2" Velcro spots....a mate has used one like it for years on several bikes and had no problems with it letting go

If I use the kill switch... and leave the key on..
it still is hard to start... and I have to cycle the power to prime the fuel..

Mine died when it fell over so approach may depend on whether it dies or you use the kill switch.

FI bikes have a lean sensor that kills the bike when is tips over. This is done to prevent the fuel pump from running dry.
Also, in the event of a crash where a fuel line is cut, it keeps the pump from pumping gas all over you as you lie trapped beneath your bike hoping that the red hot exhaust doesn't set fire to the dry leaves.

Turning the key on and off resets it.

Important note. The switch has a delay. If you can get the bike back up before it dies and no one sees, it doesn't count.

One of those "If a WRR falls in the forest" things
I've never been quick enough and always have to reset.

I had a 'forest incident' on a steep hill where the bike did a vertical 180 degree turn and attempted to hammer me into the ground, not only did the lean sensor work, but the clock reset (presumably due to battery disconnecting).

Ahem... I lost track of time for the rest of the afternoon because of that.

... at least that's what I told my wife when I rolled in after dark
