Thread: Hot Pants!

  1. #1

    Question Hot Pants!

    I've seen others post that their butt feels hot, but I really gotta raise my hand on this after my ride in 75 degree weather yesterday. It was real uncomfortable.

    I know I can deal with it but it's more of a psyhological thing.. I'm thinking that any minute my T will melt, or that the heat soak is so bad that my engine won't last past 50 hrs. I commonly do long distance rides (50-70 mi) and I don't want to have to think about this. I know it sounds crazy but I'm actually thinking of throwing that cooling additive (see thread in this forum) to see if it reduces it.

    Does anyone have a suggestion for mods or a workaround? Tin foil layered under the seat? More air into the engine compartment? Apologies if I missed someone addressing this.

    Best,
    LB

    Is the seat getting hot cause the sun is beating down on it? After all, it's black. When I ride in the 90-100 degrees, I just need to splash the seat before I get on, cause the sun will leave you a suprise for your booty

    Once you get going for a minute, I don't see a heat soak issue being possible. Or how you can determine if you are experiencing heat soak without being able to see real-time IAT and things of that sort.

    I keep a can of Octane Boost in that little rear tray below the seat. Many times I've come home, picked the can out of the tray and felt it real hot. When you consider that you are basically sittin on that can of boost its a bit disconcertin. Thank goodness I dont have to worry about air temps over 75 most of the time. (one of these days Arco I want to get back to your discussion of the limited value of octane boosters in the other thread).
