track noob question

so I have another set of rashed up OEM plastics that i'm thinking of throwing on my bike for my trackday coming up.

I was thinking of putting them on, but would it be weird or cause any kind of turbulence if i rode them without the headlights in? Like would the open headlight holes create any weird drag, and would i look like an idiot?

haha

don't laugh at me too hard

I've seen setups where they just tape up the hole.

I used some plastic pieces for strength, and then tape. I was afraid tape alone would break at speed.

I wouldn't leave them open simply for water issues if it rains.

It wouldn't create too much of an issue, think about the people who ride them naked?
