|Trailhead4x4||The fork on mine has a Showa label, is the rear shock made by Showa as well?|

I don't care what it looks like.
If it is functional, and serves a purpose, than I'm happy.
Besides, to me, it looks fine.
That's not a high visibility area, and i'm thinking maybe that it's somewhat efficient at deflecting heat. Cause they remind me of the spark plug insulators on my daughters mustang she had to protect the wires from the headers.

What Ohlins recommends for their shocks is, after washing the bike, squirt a little WD-40 on the shaft to lubricate it and protect it from corrosion.
The shock sock (if it was possible to use on this bike) would be far more effective since it covers the entire shock.
Here's a photo of my Penske shock I had for my Suzuki showing the shock sock.

Yeah, I cleaned my bike and there are a lot of tough to reach places... D:
In any case I plan on getting some new fairings over the winter. My current fairings are in horrible shape.

I want to buy a hugger, but the only one that's at a decent price is the Tyga, which looks more pretty than useful.
Actually, seems you're running the Tyga. How does your undertail/shock look? Does it offer wide enough protection?

Traxxion-Dynamics makes a "shock sock" that covers the shock to ward off sand and stuff.
But, the shock is so close to the rear pipe, I was worried it would melt.
