When riding for a while the heat on my right leg gets uncomfortable especially while wearing shorts.:eek

I was just wondering if anybody else has this problem and are there any fixes?

The heat is being generated by the exhaust pipe, which gets very hot.
There is usually a protector over the pipe but it gets hot, too.

You can:
1) Remove protector, wrap exhaust pipe with exhaust pipe wrap, replace protector.
2) Stop wearing shorts when you ride.
3) All of the above.

I have the same problem with my ‘03. I wore shorts the first time I rode and I fried! Lol. I thought I would roast with jeans on, but i was just fine. The weather was in the 80’s and felt no heat at all! Definitely wear a pair of jeans.

A small possiblity is that it's running too lean. Thinking out loud here. I think they'll get hotter that way also.

I had the same experience with the 2006 Vinson. It’s funny how when you wear any type of long pants you don’t notice it.
