To Hot!

Has anyone tried to run their Uly without the small heat deflectors in place. To beat the heat?

Without the deflectors won't beat the heat, I was going to try them to help beat it.
I saw in one magazine where they actualy used aluminum tape to close off the area between the frame and the rear cylinder head, so that more eat goes out the fan/deflectors and not up into the seat. My screw up the warranty, I think. I was going to try some kind of shield mounted to the seat itself, butt with the winter months ahead, the warm seat would be welcome.

Question Better than duct tape?

Thanks for the reply Brag. I have seen some heat shields from Special OPS. that can cover the holes on the frame and tail section. But what I feel when riding the bike is the heat that has built up in the right side of the frame. Design Engineering Inc. Makes Reflect-A-Cool that can be placed on just about any surface. It has reflective material on one side and adhesive on the other. It takes up about the same space as two layers of duct tape. Place the on the inside of the frame near the right rear on the frame. I know that would mean that heat would be reflected back to the motor, but that's better than heating up the fuel in the frame right?

I don't own one but I have been lurking around ever hopeful that a deal will fall in my lap. One thing that has limited my search is it's my impression the comfort kit only fits the '09 and '10 bikes. Is that right or can I expand my search to include the '08s of which there seem to be a few on the market?

Antonio, I'm sorry but did that include the remap of the ECM?

Well, I'm picking up a new (to me) 2009 XT this weekend. Bike has the Comfort Kit with the download and I noticed the airbox was getting a little warm during my test ride. Not unpleasant but it was only low 80s outside in So Cal, not a real test. I'll post any updates here as I get into summer but I'm really hoping it won't be any big deal.

I have a 2008 XT with the comfort kit and during our hot summers in NM the heat produced is now tolerable. Used to toast my right leg but not as much now. Under seat temps are better too (the comfort kit helped a lot with that). I also bought the Eric Buell Racing ECM calibrated for my Buell Pro muffler and K&N filter. It runs the fan completely different since the fuel management changed. Definitely improved performance.
