Wait...this is where the heat is coming from? My crotch is not what's getting hot, it's the back of my thighs.
I don't mind the heat, but I thought it would be coming from the big cat and dual silencers. Surely that monstrosity collects and causes most of the heat. Which exhaust do you have, is the full system the same or worse than the stock.Wait...this is where the heat is coming from? My crotch is not what's getting hot, it's the back of my thighs.
Does it feel better now? I'm going to try that also, because I'm pretty sure that with the traffic over here and having my legs cook will not be comfortable at all...With summer temperatures I have the problem of excessive heat from the engine when the bike is stopped: I solved that,whit this material:

Have you done something to fix this issue? I rode my bike yesterday at night with motorcycle jeans and the heat was awful, even though I didn't ride through traffic :frown2:Wait...this is where the heat is coming from? My crotch is not what's getting hot, it's the back of my thighs.
Did you position the foil side up or down?The heat in the seat is an issue for sure. We bought a automotive hood liner then cut a piece that will fit under the seat but did not try to use the adhesive to actually attach it to the seat. Went for a 200 mi. ride yesterday and the seat seems much cooler.
The hood liner is about 1/2 inch thick but compresses easily.
Here's the link to the hood liner:

So far, this seems like a fairly inexpensive fix, although until the aftermarket comes up with exhaust system to get rid of the catalytic converter yet still keep the panniers, I don't see a way to really get rid of the excessive heat, particularly when stuck in traffic.
Yes, this. I'm confused by this hot seat talk...it was my thighs.I can feel the heat but not so much on the seat. Its more on the inside of my thighs. But its not burn hot, cools down well enough when I start riding again.
