Brake Rotor Covers

Has anyone ever seen rotor covers for sportbikes? I have seen pics of the pros with covers on their rotors, and have also read literature about big improvements in braking distance in imperfect riding conditions. I haven't really been able to find any product out there...just curious is all.

Those are covers to keep the heat in carbon fiber rotors since they work better the hotter they get. Steel rotors work worse when they get very hot. No covers for you unless you really want to get some Gold Wing or HD chrome rotor
