I did that with my 2012 Tricolore...but still got scorched by the vert cyl and head! Of course this was before the engine cover TSB!!

Did you trim metal off the subframe to compensate for the washer thickness?

Hi there, last post on this was July in the northern hemisphere summer, just wondered if anyone had any updates on the effectiveness of this part? I definitely need some help in the Singapore/Malaysian heat!

Cheers

Trick is keeping motor under 200f


Larger upper and lower radiators is the best bet if heat is an issue

1. With a full exhaust (Cats removed), is this still an issue?

2. Is the heat truly not an issue when wearing leathers?

Of course i will be moving at a pretty good speed most of the time, but there are still times when we are stuck sitting on the grid, or in hot pit, etc. I dont want my balls to melt.
As a follow up to this, after racing the bike all weekend, I can say the heat wasn't an issue. I didn't even notice it.

I was hot in general because my suit is black and the sun was out a good bit. But I didn't notice any additional or abnormal heat coming from the bike. Not any more than any of my other bikes.

I am glad I didn't spend the money and waste the time on this thing.

Your results may vary.

The bike will not feel physically hot while racing but depending on the climate the engine temp will .
With high engine temp it is of course not the optimum for producing HP and there is a loss at high temps .

I'm not really worried about the heat when I have my full leathers on for a track day, I'm mainly asking about the effectiveness for those trips when I will be wearing textile clothing and there will be frequent stop/starts with traffic through villages or towns during a full day ride. It will be hot and humid from first thing in the morning till last thing at night!

Never had a problem even pushing it hard in 100f weather.

Only slow speeds when you cannot keep the engine under 200f.
