Lucky me, these came on my bike and I was actually thinking of replacing them with the peanut style...
Oh... You actually had a question!
The CC Products Cool Covers were advertised as being stronger, heavier, and quieter than the stock parts and they were also supposed to help with engine cooling. AFAIK, those claims are all true but it'd be hard to confirm any cooling advantages. One of their best features is that they have o-rings instead of gaskets. The rings last a long time and mine have never leaked a drop. Not yet anyway...
If yours are in nice condition, hang on to em. I initially bought mine because my bike is loaded with 80's after-market accessories but the looks have kinda grown on me as time has passed.
Now... Don't drop your bike!
