Since you have a 2014 Voyager I would spend the money on having the ECU reflashed by Ivan. Mine is flashed and I have no heat issues since we have the air kit pulling the heat off the motor. With the 7000 miles you have it will also run cooler after more miles when broke in.

Flash, PCV, K & N, with modified air intake kit and 2 in 1 V&H Pipes helped reduce the heat drastically and increased performance, but did not eliminate the heat altogether when sitting at red lights city riding in the Summer. These heat shields finished the job for me though.

Yes, I will agree with you, since I live in the mountains and most of my riding is away from any traffic. Very rare for me to be in any slow or stopped traffic. If I did I would probably be looking at these.

Flash AND PCV? I'd think that one would be fighting the other?
