    Well thighs actually!
    On my (brief) shakedown ride today things got a tad warm between the legs:eek:.
    Is it normal for the side panels where they meet tank and even the bottom sides of the tank itself to get hot?
    Not warm but hot !:sun:
    Had a grope under the tank and the heat shield padding things are there.

    Could this be related to my oil light issue? Am I overheating without realising it? Fan cuts in, runs and switches off after a few minutes so presumably working correctly. No boiling noises or spewage of coolant.
    But seems too hot to be comfortable especially for a tourer.

    Maybe your bike got hot under the collier at the thought of being ridden :D

    Tank and adjoining man parts definitely cooler today - the solution - put petrol in the tank :blush:, and it stays nice and cool.

    So no need for the fuel gauge that doesn't work anyway, when bike and man parts begin to get hot, head for the nearest servo.

    Wear a kilt for greater sensitivity/ fuel accuracy... I believe they make them in leather these days, so suitable for the bike!

    Hi there, one of the main problems with heat on the legs is the bit of foam between the cylinder head and tank missing - I would check this first. The hot air will come out here rather than the fairing vents as its easiest route for it. You may have sorted but I have only just joined and am having a troll through
