    Need more info. Are you moving or not? At what speed are you moving? What is the outside temp?

    Yes, I know exactly what your talking about. For me it's the left side. I placed a piece of leather on left side to act as a deterrent to break up the flow so it isn't so much like a blast furnace air flow. Still hot but not second degree burn hot tub

    Me too.

    My former 2004 FJR1300 was legendary for heat.

    My former Victory Vision was better than the FJR but was still hot, especially at low speeds or stopped (no surprise).

    Curious. For those who do, or don't feel heat on the feet, what type/style of boot are you wearing?

    Do you think the deflector you added is affecting the flow of cooling air over the engine? Does it run hotter?

    Not that I can tell. The temp. Gauge stays right where its always been. Doesn't stop the flow of air just diffuses it takes keep from blasting in continuous flow. Boot still gets warm but not burning hot. Really it's only needed when running between 70-80 mph. The engine really throws off some btu's at that speed.
