I think this is the difference; maybe what we don't need is ventilation. :-))))

Well... you can also put some cooler fans on the inside of both plats, but i dont think it will be a problem of heating if you do the plats.

It will just be hotter in there but it will go back and leave by the rear wheel. Dont think it must be a problem for any electronic or electric component there, for the simply reason that you can drive this bike in Africa with 45C-50C and it will be ok, it wont damage any component

The engine radiates heat. The radiator creates a flow of hot air. The exhaust is hotter still. The catalytic convertor makes the exhaust hotter yet.

I would think removing the cat, the hottest part on the bike that can be removed (without turning the bike into a statue) would help better than anything. I have not seen mention of this being tried.
Anyone?

Because it's not removable; ypu may have warranty issues. How extent do you believe the heat will drop?

Thanks to this thread . . . I finally addressed the KTM SuperMoto voltage regulator/rectifer heat issue . . . Which reduces the heat on your lower legs as a bonus . . . by adding a frame shield and relocating the VR.

There is a gap (top left) that allows free flowing air over the VR to reduce heat. You could allow a similar gap on the 1190 frame . . . To allow airflow etc:



Compared to the stock VR location above the Y pipe:

removing catalytic convertor is almost impossible . you need a full system to remove all of it then also needs tuning i guess.

Not many guys moaning about the heat on the 1190 R, the seat is not 2 pieces and is much thicker at the front and feels more comfortable to me. I don't really feel the heat on my adventure, but the day temps don't go over 20 degrees Celsius. My seat is set on high, this might help as it is further away from the pipe(I think).

P.S. heard the new Akro pipe with the DB killers removed, sounds alot like my 990 with FMF's on with the DB killers out. My neighbours are going to love it

I though you can't remove the db killers so it is possible . Is it need drilling or cutting ?

Not sure - I saw it at the dealer, I think he had to drill the pop rivets out, not sure which ones, but I would assume the ones on the carbon fibre cone. I will check with him. There were 2 bikes that just had Akros fitted and one had the db killers removed and it sounded fantastic
