Every V-Twin Superbike I've had and now this Adventure which is a Superbike motor all suffer from the same problem, heat between your legs. Depending on the position of the rear cylinder and header down pipe the heat will hit you. Ducati with it's brilliant 1199 has a free ass warmer looking at the rear header pipe design under the seat and they have the exact same problem.

Consensus is, these bikes will cook your nuts when you in traffic or on a HOT day...all you can do is limit the radiation by fitting a shield like WINGS has or if there is space, tac wield a heat shield on the rear downpipe if there is space, again depends on the design of the bike.

I've learned to live with it as see it as part of the "charm" a v-twin has.

I've ridden quite a few V twins, but my 1190 is the only one I've experienced cooking thighs on. Really looking forward to my Wings coolers.

My 996SPS in traffic was interesting, same for the old TLR1000R, my 2 vrods were the first bikes to be 'cool' to the nuts...but my RXV450 COOKED my ass with the pipe running under my ass...so much so the seat melted...

Cooler

Those look like OEM panels. Very nice.
I am still concerned with trapping the heat in there.

I have the same model/color bike and close to pulling the trigger.
I want the pipe too, to go with it.

When you e-mail Gorazd and tell him you want both the seat coolers and the muffler maybe he will discount the price a little for getting both.

How are you guys wiring in the driving lights, separate switch or a relay and connected to the headlights?

I/m looking at the WINGS cooler panels as their pipe is brilliant...let us know how the panels perform over time.....

I used ADVmonster's wireless dimmer ( http://stores.advmonster.com/waterpr...h-beam-bypass/ ).
The dimmer and the relay fit perfect behind the headlight.
I used the 1 amp switched power and the 10 amp constant power behind the headlight. The 1 amp to turn on a relay and the 10 amp to power it. Also tapped into the high beam wire to turn the LED's up to 100% when I turn on the high beam. I normally keep them around 50%.
So I have no external switches, just a remote I keep in the dash cubby hole. The lights are on when the bike is on.

The Wings seat coolers are great, the heat on my inside leg is reduced to almost nothing.
