I'm 64 and without reading glasses it took me ages to realise trip A and trip B are on the bottom above the temp gauge and I could then set them.Hello,
I never said the engine was running hot, **** I wouldn't know where the temp gauge was as that dash is too complex and hard to see for my old eyes. I said the engine was throwing hot air on my legs. If it's coming from those vents where the fan motors sit I'll be able to build some plexiglass diverters with just enough angle to kick it off me.
Cup half empty, cup half full...the hot air will be great during cold weather runs
Better looking than me, you must have all your mirrors shiny side to the wall.:wink2:We're the same age Skimmer but I'm sure I'm better looking. That dash confuses me, you would think they would go simplistic because it's a given that we'll eventually break down in the middle of nowhere. Readable tach and speedo would be fine with me.
Highway pegs would help a lot to kick that hot air below our legs
What was your average speed?.....and I think I'll have to make the highway pegs...tube stock u-bolted around the square frame right above the exhaust, usually take rubber handlebar grips and glue them on the ends to deaden vibration. Have to wait till I get the crash guards to see how they fit...I didn't want to add weight but everything on this bike cost a million dollars to fix so crash guards are a necessity. Just found out that the headlight is over $1000...pisses me offI just rode my 1000 Africa Twin from Nebr. to Mexico and back. The only heat I felt was the HOT WEATHER HEAT! I would like a good pair of highway pegs tho. Where can I get a good pair?
I live in Texas and I wear shorts from Spring to Fall and the air is down to 84 this time of year.
This beast throws a lot of heat....I'm going to build some removable summertime deflectors
Thank you for your input
