You got the EITMS activated...that helps plenty as well
I did have it on but got sick of it coming on all the time. Not a fan
Theres a reason it comes on...just saying. Anyway it only comes on at idle, the very second you touch the throttle its back on two. My powervision shows me that just sitting waiting for the lights to change in QLD will activate the idle control. I haven't hooked up a temp gauge to my nuts but i think it helps to keep me cooler than both slugs creating heat.
The issue I found with it was after sitting at idle for a while with it activated, the bike occasionally back fired fairly substantially when I took off. Maybe it's a stage 4 thing and they don't like it. Not sure. Didn't appreciate the big beast kicking pretty hard when it back fired.
Biggest heat reducer for me was gutting the cat converter. The frame deflectors were effective
I believe the headers on Rhinehart duals is placed further down the pipe so the heat isnt as close to the rider. ??
I put similar deflectors on a couple years ago and they were definately an improvement. Very cheap way to reduce heat to legs especially being a short cunt like me that has legs close in to motor at stops. An even better improvement for me anyway was new headers. Never thought about or considered heat when I put the S&S header pipes on. They route the rear cylinder pipe down and under the bike instead of behind the rear cylinder over the starter. Much better on the right leg at lights. With both of them on now definately better. Only thing burning me now is the primary on really hot days at city traffic stop lights. Might lower bike another 1/2 inch to get legs out a bit farther.
Did you start the bike and go for a ride this morning Binnsy? Mag 6 earthquake felt in rural Vic and se sa!
