Make sure you have all the recalls done. Once I had my aero recall taken care of the bike ran A LOT cooler. Granted, itís still hot as hell, but it wonít kill you.

What exactly is the aero recall? My bike cooks my legs in traffic, but engine temps are normal. I think all the recalls have been done on my bike. I bought it in June and dealer said no recalls needed for the bike. At 600 mile service just an oil change and ECU update.

What gear do you guys wear? With riding pants its there but not bad. With leather, its not an issue.

Then again, at 60 degrees and less, I'd be happy with more heat, to be honest. I got caught in full leathers at 55 degrees last night in pitch black back roads. not fun.

There was slow movement. Enjoyed the bike, but I have now returned it. Donít think it was for me. Might look at the Hypermotard SP again.
