Whats the deal with the shock protector?

It doesn't go all the way down in the swingarm to keep gunk out of the rear shock? Whats the deal with that? Has a couple holes in it too.
I'm confused...

Yeah, looks kind of unfinished, doesn't it? I cut a piece of rubber, poked two holes in it and zip tied it to the two holes at the lower end. Keeps the crud from flinging onto the shock.

Shock Sock

When I changed tubes last time I cut up the old rear innertube and slipped it over the shock..it's still working a year later.
