Is it the heat from the engine, or the heat from the pipes?
bud, engine ice and otter kool'ants (yes, I put that $chitt in my motor)will reduce the air temp off the radiator as that is what ever body thinks they want/need. it will not reduce engine operating temp. if anything it will raise it. but that opens a whole kan of worms. all those with $kin in thi$ i$$ue will $wear that it worx. hey if it worx 4u it$ worth it. but it$ all in yor head.She thinks it is from the engine. It has cobra pipes. They are shielded. I believe her short legs add to the discomfort. When I first started looking for the shield I thought it would be easy to find. My bike is an older Harley. For an air cooled bike those parts are all over the place. But liquid cooled. For the most part I would think is unnecessary. So I will start with flush and keep looking. Rainy day like today is a good day to check the web.
