Hot Foot
« on: May 22, 2019, 08:13:45 pm »
Anybody else get a lot of heat on the right ankle?

This was never a problem in the past but it has been getting worse, thinking maybe an exhaust leak or something maybe, and has slowly started to show up on the left side now. I have been riding this bike for two years and this has never been an issue before so kinda stumped?

Did you happen to remove the piece that blocks air flow above the radiator.
I did and discovered it allowed more hot air flow at my ankles.

Ride safe, Ted

Or maybe it just came loose from it's proper position.

I will check that, not to mention I hit a dog recently so I am sure it is all f'd up anyway along with the lower cowl, but it was getting hot foot before that happened.

Maybe I should just take all the lower cowling off since they are broken anyway and held on with Duct Tape now :great: But I am still riding!!!

Since you mentioned the lower cowling being broken, then your lower heat shields might be broken, allowing them to shift and not seal properly.

def check all shields. when i was learning that my upper one wouldn't stay (until i made the bracket to fix it), when it would 'fall', it would heat up one side or the other notably , depending where it let loose.

do you need to pull the tank to do the upper shield, I cant seem to see how it is supposed to be?

I would think it would be a bear to do if you didn't pull the tank.  Pulling the tank is easy unless you have a full tank of fuel.
