    GTR - Hot Seat

    I have been doing quite a bit of touring and long rides on my GTR. I have found that after 1.5 hours of riding, that the seat starts to start warming my backside. I am new to 4 strokes but have not read this or heard this from anyone else. Is this normal? I rode in 60 degree weather on Monday and still found the heat to be uncomfortable.

    It's normal.
    To lessen the heat vent your seat base.

    There are threads on different vents to use.
    Just use the search function.

    I did read about the flow-rites and the frogskinz when I was reading up on air intakes, but didn't get the connection to getting hot air out of the engine bay. I thought it was more for getting fresh air in for the air intake. Now that my ass is burning, it all makes sense. Not being in front of my ski at this time, I assume their is a factory air intake at the front of the seat that I could put a 2" frogskinz in the hull on each side and at least one 2" frogskinz on each side at the rear of the hull. That should solve my problem.

    So bringing this back up to the top. Picked up some 2" inside diameter Frogzskin's today. I plan to put two at the rear and two where the stickers are in this picture unless someone recommends a better option. Also after inspecting the GTR and comparing to my friends RXT-X 260, the GTR doesn't seem to have any air vents or air flow at all. Is this true?

    I've looked on my GTR and noticed that too. I don't get it.

    Decided to just install the Frogzskin's at the rear for now. If there is still a heat issue next summer I will install them in the front as well.

    Looks good. My bilge pump port is right there on the left side of my ski...If I did this to mine I would have to position the skinz a bit differently.
