fork covers

I have an 08 1300 tourer with the tapered forks. was just wondering if the covers are used strictly for looks or are they functional.

the two upper ones on my bike a dented and I thought about just removing them.

anyone does this?

There are plenty of rooms for rent in my head.

they must just cover the front fork from dirt and debris. looks like the whole top of the triple tree has to be removed as well
