    I was out on mine all day yesterday, temps hit 34 at one point, and I didn’t notice any excessive heat coming from the bike. Before you chop it in, have a look at getting your headers ceramic coated, as that seems to make a huge difference.

    Spoke to Abingdon. May get the rough coating done. The one you've had done only reduces heat output by 15%. The rough one roughly 30%. More expensive....roughly £400!

    So I've bit the bullet on some Wings side covers and under seat blankets (ECU sits on top of the blanket which I was concerned about). I'll fit, photo and review on here. I did wonder whether having the under bike manifolds boxed in with a heavy duty bash plate may not help. If manifolds in free air they'll stay cooler I suspect. It's a thought easily tested.

    That’s a good point, as I’ve ditched my bash plate (as you know )

    Well.....It's always good to have someone to blame

    TODAY....A MOMENT IN TIME!

    Another today, another moment in time.

    Fantastic ride. Quiet roads on the incredible Tuono. What a bike that is!
