That's where I feel the heat. But like I said my bike doesn't run hot. No temp light, no excessive fan running.
I noticed the heat from the pipes as well. Not sure if that is from the shields or due to more restricted path for exhaust gasses.

I also went back to stock from Cobra street rods. The note was actually annoying under hard acceleration. Much happier with stock. I did nothing with the ECU and everything runs great.

Well I'm glad to hear that from the both of you. You may be right on the heat coming from the more restricted airflow and maybe a combination of the lack of front shield and the airflow but if that's the way the designers made it that must be correct. Good enough for me thanks for both of you chiming in on this one
