I'd be curious to see the comparison with your bike with another similar C14 without a heat "problem".

I have the similar result with foot position. If I keep the my feet on the pegs and pointed straight (legs fully behind faring), there is a bit of heat that radiates up from the engine. If I point my toes out and put my knee in the breeze, quite a bit of heat gets pulled in...I surmise it's normally exhausted thru the exterior fairing vents but my knee position changes the airflow.

If I put my heel on the footpeg with my leg hanging in the breeze as far as possible, not so much heat gets by.
