I leave the foam on if it's in good shape. However, most of the time, 20-30 year old foam is not in good shape. You can buy replacement foam, but I don't. Like Siqurdd said, I go with cork replacement. I think I get much better road feel while it still absorbs shock. If you're going to replace, go with cork, not foam.
BTW I'm assuming you ride with gloves.
