You should be able to make a "blanket" that will fit under your seat.

Hi USMC, I have ordered a shield from DEI through ebay, it was a self adhesive white thick fiber covered with a hard aluminum foil. I have stuck this foil, the seat felt even warmer. Parking the bike at home, after a short traffic ride, I have taken out the seat; I can tell you that the foil was as hot as to let you cook ham and eggs on. :-))))). I have torn it out and put a plastic heat shield from KTM but not much improvement. I will love thecbike on winter for sure; in tge meantime, I am riding my 800R in the city.

Had a Buell and this was an issue also. Only time I really noticed was when I didn't have leathers on , or if it was a really hot day. If I remember the way to deal with it on the Buell was to duct some extra air and this did the trick.

Yes, during summer, leather is out of question and it's just the beginning. There is not much space, I am tired of trying. Because whatever I did, it has just worsened the problem. I will ride like this as long as I can. Thanks that I have a backup

The speedo on the right with a single man , 2 man , a luggage. Does it only appear only on the adventure and not the R model?
Cause I notice that some models do show and some doesn't.
My R model book also doesn't indicates it.
Can anyone explain???

only bikes with EDS (electronic damping system) has this. and only standard model (meaning non-R) can has this option
R model has manually adjustable suspension, not electronically

I"m looking for the fog lamps from Power parts. Here in Australia they cost almost $800.00. Do Any of you guys know if those ones are different than the Touratech ones? And if so, which ones are better?

Light choices

I am assuming these are halogens. If it was me I would install aftermarket LEDs at a fraction of that cost, better performance and less amps. They are usually a broad beam but that is how the Powerparts ones are described anyway. Touratech does make a hid which should be all he light you will ever need but for the 990 version here in the States they are nearly $600 each side!
