I never found any of those ice cool type products to make any difference. Its airflow thats makes a difference or different radiators.

take your side fairings off the bike and go for a ride and watch the temps plummet.

A better heat shield does help with exhaust heat so I'm not saying its not all exhaust.

On 300 mile rides the only time I have ever had a heat problem was in slower traffic when the engine gets over 200F, the second that engine is down to 195 its only hot not toast your sacks off hot.

For me I wrapped my exhaust and used the new heat shield on the 1199 instead of the old terni skinny cf shield that was worthless. That alone tamed the exhaust and isolated heat to just the engine temp.
Yes, for sure increased engine temp radiates more heat around (and to exhaust, subframe, seat etc.) and as you say it is only in slower traffic you really can feel the heat and this is basically due to less airflow through the radiator, around the engine and exhaust etc. I like to think that with those rear Cylinder Head covers removed you have better airflow around the rear CH and headers and that may slightly help the cooling a bit. And I did not feel any increased rider leg heat after removing those rear CH covers so I am satisfied with this solution.

Again at track speeds old style skinny shield no wrap, and I could feel heat on a 100f day and deez nuts were getting way to hot.

Now with new style termi exhaust shield, and wrapped, I'm good. It never gets hot at track speed.

Stop and go on a 100f day is tolerable, UNLESS you get caught in traffic at 35mph for 30 minutes and the engine gets over 200F, then forget it.
