Personally I'd take it off, but appearance is all opinion...

If it were mine and I wanted it on, I'd put a strip of that clear paint protectant film under it to keep it from damaging the paint. 3M makes it, so does Xpel. And wrap it over the edge of the hood. It's easy to apply.

I've never used plasti dip so can't compare the two methods, but can say that I put that xpel stuff on my bike where the throttle and clutch cables rub the fairing stay, and it works great. It is very durable, the cables rub pretty hard there and it's holding up well.

I bought an Xpel brand door sill gaurd kit off amazon, it's a roll of the stuff about 3" wide. It'd work perfect for what you need. It was fairly cheap too. Also, a little heat(hairdryer) makes it conform well too. I made roughly 90 degree bends with the stuff using low heat on my heat gun to get it to conform to the fairing stay curve.

Ill ask a buddy who does tinting to let me have some of the 3M stuff and do it myself.
Thanks for the idea.
