Heat shield kit - adhesive die cut pieces

Has anyone installed and reviewed this kit? Claims to reduce heat by 15F

Lining the seat helps nothing. Zip. Nada.

The other stuff? Maybe a bit

I would not say “nothing”. The problem with heat two fold. The tank get super hot because it sit directly on top of the rear cylinder. Heat from the rear cylinder not only heats the tank but escapes in one of two places, and this is where the heat problems really begin.

The heat escapes up between the seat and tank. Most cycles block off the area, not Ducati. This is why your balls get so hot, that and a super hit tank.

Heat also escapes out the subframe holes, right were your legs/thighs are. The seat gets hot because the heat is trapped under the seat after it vents to the back of the subframe. Take off the seat and bracket and you will see what I’m talking about.

One remedy I theorize is to cut two vent holes on the bottom of the rear cowl. The idea is to vent/draw heat behind me relieving the heat under the seat and away from the subframe holes. It will only work if there is airflow under the cowl. Who knows. It’s winter here and I obviously have put way too much thought into this. It might be time for something else’s, like an Aprilia RSV4.

If you buy the kit buy some extra and do this, it will lower the temp of the tank.

I installed the kit back in July and I have to say I noticed a big difference in reducing the heat. Yes it's still there but no where near as bad as it was. What do you expect when you sit on the motor and the exhaust lol

Installed recently, still cold here, haven’t tested it out, but I don’t have a good starting reference when I got the bike in the fall temps were 60-70° bike felt fine..
