Another thing I did today was to try and remove some heat radiating up to my rump.
Installed some heat wrap on the rear header.
It was in the 90's during my ride today, although I was mainly digging the new seat, when the ride ended I started thinking "Hey, I didn't get toasted buns..Huh- guess it works" Not very scientific- I'll focus on the heat better during my next ride.

Ok, I went for a nice long ride that included a lot of uphill twistys, back roads a few miles of highway. Temps were in the mid 80's to low 90's. Felt no uncomfortable heat rising up during the ride, No cooked legs, burnt buns, etc. I do believe the header wrap is doing it's job.


The only noticeable heat I felt was a little blowing in from the radiators and the catalytic converter cooking my right foot.
Started thinking about what to do about the Cat and came up with a plan- and hopefully the solution.
Made a shield out of .090 aluminum, covered the inside with 2k deg. heat shield and left a 1/4" gap between the Cat and shield for air flow.
Does it work?? I'll let you know after the paint's fully cured..







Stay tuned....
