I made a padded tank pad for my tank bag to sit on without scratching the tank, I will make a full cover when I get the time. Also I insulted under the seat to reduce the heat (works well) and finished off fitting my electronics.

Nicely done. What material did you use under the seat for heat protection?
I used automotive firewall under felt, I just trimmed it to size and shape very easy. The idea is to keep the heat off the legs and also to give me a cooler dry and dust proof area if I want to store and charge anything as I am riding

In your estimation, how much reduction have you experienced? 20%, 30%...? And where on the legs were you experiencing the heat mostly? For me, it is the back of my thighs.

In my opinion a slightly scratched tank would look better than having that black thing fitted. Everyone to their own I suppose.
Yeah the bike looks great as is and better without it. But it only takes 30 sec to put on or take off were as scratches are forever. That being said I made a complete custome tank guard to protect my Gsx 1000 with 3M clear tape in strategic places never got a mark on that bike till I slid out on a corner and wrote it off. >:)

Got some serious talents there, I couldn't make anything like that if my life depended on me.

I'm also extremely interested on the electronics that you are talking about for that much benjamins... hmm...

Thanks, but not being a techy I need more specific information
if you want a switched feed (i.e. a feed that is on while the ignition is on and off when the ignition is off)then there is a good feed on the right side of the tank look at the feed Good Advice For New Owners and you will see loads of info and photos
