I don't have crash bars yet and haven't felt any heat at all but will definitely keep this in mind so I can fab something up to get some of that heat when the colder Fall weather comes around

'17 Africa Twin, '82 MB5, '78 XL250s, '72 CB350K4

Maybe try running it on a hot day without the bags??
I have the same, 17 manual and don't notice any extensive heat either. 5'10.

I have the crash bar bags off now and has been ok for the past couple of days. I don’t think it would melt them but it might be possible over time it would make them stiff or less pliable.

Every bike I've owned has heat coming off the radiators, that's what they do! If it worries you, sell your bike and try golf. FORE!

The more you've found, the less you've been around.

I've always thought the heat from the AT was not at all bad. My last bike was a Ducati Scrambler and it would actually BURN the insides of my right thigh while stopped at red lights.

Over the past few days of riding to and from work it has gotten better. I now have over a thousand miles on it and it was 102 degrees yesterday. Maybe has to do with breaking in. I know it will be fine though. Just new bike pretty worries I guess.
