Well 6 hours riding from Dundathu through to Wolooga, Gimpy, Cedar Pocket, up & down Mt Pamona then home. non stop (except for fuel stops) and it faired even better than I expected. I really put it through its paces, spirited riding the whole way no cramping no excessive heat since I added a firewall to the undercarriage of the seat (one of the best things you can do to stay comfy on a long ride). The roads were fair to ruff with some loose gravel, I did the whole ride in touring mode just to keep true to my test results. Will be posting a GoPro video as soon as I can make it short enough. What a great bike for this sort of riding. I'm happy :grin2:

Hey show us the stuff you put on your seat. I put some gold reflective heat tape i had laying around on the bottom, just for fun, not expecting much.
I used a 12mm sound deadening /heat shield cotton based product used in automotive trimming. Works very well but there are better products out there that are thinner. The ideal thickness 6mm ( so that the seat clips back easily) I will probably re do mine when I get some foiled backed stuff. I will take a photo when I am at my workshop.

Thanks man. Check out my heat tape.

It seems better but it could just be a miscalibrated butt dyno with a healthy dose of confirmation bias. I'd think the best idea is the dynamat heat blocking stuff.
Yeah I think the dynamat stuff is good. They do a self adhesive backed and non adhesive I would suggest the non adhesive one as it will leave a mess if you need to remove it.

Here my biggest question, though...will keeping the heat away from the butt with insulation cause any damage to components located under the seat. I know there isn't much space there, but there is a little room for air to pass over the components and you're essentially taking that away. Thoughts?

I had a good long think about that exact point befor I did mine and I am pretty sure that if anything it reduces any heat to components under the seat. My theary is that it diverts the heat away and channels it out the back rather than drawing it into the seat voids as it was before. I made sure that there was no holes that could draw heat in. If you leave a hole you will create a vacume as you travel. The faster you go the greater the vacuum.
