*WHAT* Honda ST1300 "heat problem"? Isn't that like the BMW F650 "Injector/Throttle-Snatch" problem?

I had an '05 FJR. My solution was to finally sell it. Absolutely unacceptable. Big, hi-performance engines don't have to put out big heat. My 'Busa didn't make any uncomfortable heat. My ZX14 is hot, but nothing like the FJR. That's just poor design. They should be hung from their toes and flogged.

Yes, I think the ST is rather warm. However, many more don't complain about it. Perhaps Honda may have to abandon that design. That transversely mounted 4 sure throws a lot of heat back to the rider! Regarding the 06' fjr, you must be kidding - MCN proclaimed the heat problem was fixed for good.

If the seat appears capable of having something stuck to the underside, grab one of the smaller DynaMat kits with heat shielding. Beyond that your only solution may be to create some sort of ducting to direct air underneath the seat.

I have a o6 FJR and don't find the heat all that bad but:

Wear heavy jeans or riding pants and higher boots to protect your lower legs

Keep the side vents closed in warm weather

Try using a sheepskin seat pad, it really works in hot or cold weather http://alaskaleather.com/

Just riding in pants may solve the problem. When you ride around in those capri pants your really not doing anything for your image.

I had a FJR and sold it. I really liked the bike and the heat problem was an easy fix. Wear riding pants or Draggin Jeans. That's it.

After all we are riding on top of a engine.

I now have a ZX14 and I still ride with Draggin jeans and have no problem. I am usually going fast and heat is no problem. They make scooters for around town.

Smile just kiddin
