Red guts

I took a look at my Sram Red levers earlier and noticed that the right covers are missing!  I’ve used it for months now without noticing anything.

Without the cover there seems to be quite a bit of dirt buildup on the mechanicals.  I’ve also noticed that the ratchet is made side-specific for the red levers.  This means that there isn’t any unneeded material there and I wont be able to shave any weight from it this way.
