My liquid coolled Trumpet is hotter than my Harley, especially when the fan comes on.

I am seeing a few people purchasing, at my local Harley Dealer, what looks like a diaper, that goes underneath the saddle, but protrudes somewhat, that is actually a heat shield to cure exactly what you are experiencing. And some people change the headers, so that there is no cross-over pipe to the right, on the rear cylinder. Harley also seels a Fan Kit for parade duty...

Does the fan kit come with a fez?

Trade it in on a V-rod.



You get liquid cooling and a much better looking bike.



Electraglides are for golfers.

My wife and I just came back from a weekend trip in 80 degree weather on my 06 Road Glide.No problems of this nature.

You guys seemed to have missed the basics. Is the bike EFI or carburated? Since Harley has issues with emmisions I wonder if the motor (if EFI) is running so lean that the pipes are baking with the blow torch in the pipe. If EFI - lets get an aftermarket computer to richen it up and see what happens. Better yet - find a shop with a dyno and a exhaust gas analyzer and see what the scoup is. This will tell you right away if the bike has a mixture issue.

I just bought a prev-owned 03 Ultra and my right leg does get pretty warm While I'm waiting on the light to turn green but even on a warm day (Dallas) it's not so bad that it turns my leg red. It's EFI btw. On another note Buzglyd, what is your engine turning at 60 mph? I traded in a 91 and this one seems to spin a little faster at any given speed.

Harleys can go 60 mph?



I never checked at 60 but 70 is 3 grand even.
