This has been discussed a lot. I don't remove powder because Harley doesn't remove it - and I've never seen a problem with any of my HD's. All my bikes, except 1 have powder. I didn't remove it on my painted one (I painted it well over 20 years ago) and had no problem there. One thing, I do check the torque on all my bolts every so often.
Never had any lower motor bolts that needed to be re-torqued - I have had several upper motor mount bolts that did.
