The wiring and ECU are fine up to 100 C / 212 F, and the heat convected to that area only gets to around 60 C / 140 F. Can't give any assurances about the injection moulded airbox and lid seal at those temperatures, unless the Unifilter kit "lid seal" has been fitted to accommodate the distortion in the plastics.

Another benefit of the seat coolers is that it seems to quiet some of the engine noise. Here is a picture of of the matt coolers

I like the matt finish.

Thanks for the picture. I like the way the matt looks like a factory part . Ordered a set yesterday.

The matt really matches the seat well. I did not put on the heat blanket since my seat already had the updated insulation. Quality pieces-well worth the money

Although initially I fitted the heat blanket, I've now taken it off. The heat blanket causes quite a lot of "extra" heat to rise up in front of the passenger, between the front and rear seats, compared with not fitting the heat blanket. And I quite like the rider's seat being a little warmer.

With the heat shields, there is no noticeable heat hitting the riders legs, but there is "extra" hot air directed onto the passenger's lower legs compared with not having the heat shields.

I measured the contact temperature of the carbon heat shields after a long run today. The left hand shield was 75 C / 175 F, the right hand shield was 60 C / 140 F. Without the heat shields this would be the air temperature hitting the rider's legs.

I may cut up the heat blanket and use it on the inside of the shields

The heat still comes out it just does it behind the riders legs. I never ride with a passenger but those who do may not like the shields.

Don't think it's necessary ... CF withstands very high temperatures (used in Gas Turbine impellers) and doesn't radiate the heat much! But if you like to lovingly caress your new heat shields and not get your fingers "warm", it'll help with that :-)

Yep, that was my conclusion as well. My passenger(s) feel increased heat on lower legs, but because it's low down and they wear riding boots, it's far less a problem for them to have the heat than for me having it directed at my inner thighs where it's quite sensitive

Taking the heat shield blanket off re-distributes the heat in quite a good way. My thighs are still "protected", my bum gets warmed comfortably through the seat, and there is less "hot air" directed at the passenger's lower legs.

From the "spy pictures" of the 2015 1190 Adv tourer, it seems KTM are introducing a heat shield lagging for the rear cylinder exhaust downpipe.

I ordered and paid for for my can and heat shield on the 19th. Did not get a shipping notice right away like some others here did and thought that it would not arrive in time for my long weekend of riding. Received tracking info today and it looks like I get tomorrow. I'm not sure about this but I think that because they did not ship right away that they did and overnight ship (Slovenia/ U.S. Customs/ New Jersey= $$) to make up the time. I would say that's a good lookout for the customer.

FYI - I had my pipes coated as well. No change other than more general protection now and a better matching color.

What are referring to when you say "lower the A/F?"
