Hot foot!

Squeaky back brake? Hard to control at 30mph/40kph?

Hot foot!

Post by ohpyramids » Fri Aug 23, 2013 8:58 pm

Took a long weekend trip with my girlfriend recently. She said everything was great except her left foot was pretty hot most of the time.

Just found out why....

Any thoughts on ways to reduce this in the future? Pipe wrap comes to mind immediately...

Put your heat shields back on. So they DO work ;)
If you bought the bike without any, fit small SMR shields if not needing panniers. Otherwise I am sure there are members near you who have standard ones lying around after they have fitted SMR's.
Had similar fun years ago when a chick melted her Ugg boots (not quite ATGATT) on my GSX1100 exhaust :lol:

How short are her legs? Those look like heel melting marks?
She is old enough, no?!


Just kidding.

It wasn't her boots, must have been her overpants. So now, Im planning to change the rear setup, going with the smr cf shields and some non ktm luggage racks later.
