I have a new, 2011 RT-S, SE5. Out riding yesterday in 75 degree weather I thought my right foot was going to BROIL. Anyone know where I can find something to deflect the heat coming off the radiator/engine?
Some on here will give you the advice you need. As for me I just wear a pair of hiking boots. It helps. Feet still get hot but it is bearable with the boots on. I have ridden with just sneakers and that was uncomfortably hot. David
Same here mostly. We wear long pants and boots so the direct exposure isn't so bad. We know a retired tool and die maker with a Limited that was kicking around some kind of louver system, ala Goldwings to , control direction of heat flow winter/summer without compromising airflow. There are numerous posts about ideas for dealing with the heat on several Spyder sites.I for one would vote for the directional control. Also,high speed helps
I had the same issue and I got lucky in the sense that my bike had a factory deal where you could have "scoops" installed to help with the heat
issues..right behind the fog light housing is an open part that is the new part that I had our local dealership put on. Miss having that warmth when it is a little in the chilly side though!
