Heat on legs in summer days
on: May 05, 2021, 07:04:37 PM
Hi,

The summer has arrived and I find it almost impossible to enjoy the ride on my versys1000 2020 SE in temperature above 30c.
Does anyone tried the solution describe in the link below on >2019 models?

I have not tried on my 2020, but based on the post it seems to have helped...I donít recall any changes from 2019 to 2020, so I suspect the result would be similar.

You're correct.
I asking that because the faring in 2020 is different from the one in 2015 model, so I don't know exactly where to drill the holes  :027:

I bought exhaust tape and wrapped the headers. It's still warm, but a great improvement. Also did it for my Harley years ago. My wife said it was sooo much better. Here's a link for similar to mine:

Don't find my 2020 to be a problem . Strangely my 2018 1260 mutistrada was one of the coolest running bikes i ever had and i was told Ducati's run hot . Triumph 1200 tigers are toaster ovens on wheels
Some days i'm amazing other days i leave my keys in the fridge

I don't have a problem with heat from the engine.  The earlier GTRs had this problem, and they changed the bottom of the fairing in 09 or 10 to cure the problem.  I had a 12 and did not feel excessive heat.
