I have my lowers removed all summertime, it does increase the airflow past my legs significantly although it is no cooler than the ambient air. It is very easy to do, just remove the engine guard complete with plastic (2 bolts each side) and I bolt on Vaquero engine guards with no lowers.
The temperature gauge will read a bit higher because the lowers actually direct air into the radiator, and there is more wind noise and turbulence but I enjoy the extra airflow across my legs and up my jacket.
