    Had a crack at putting these mid frame deflectors on the SG today.  Fiddly as buggery, needed fingers like spaghetti.   Got them on in about an hour or so with the help of a magnetic pick up tool. I don't mind the look, will see if they work soon.

    You got the EITMS activated...that helps plenty as well

    A better (richer) tune certainly helps a lot re heat. But spose that risks new bike warranty these days

    I did have it on but got sick of it coming on all the time. Not a fan

    Bloody hell young Binnsy, you've got the HD equivalent of a nuclear reactor between your legs designed purely to convert fossil fuel into noise, heat and power.
    The mid frame deflectors will help but on some days, in slow traffic, it WILL be unbearable.

    Yeah first time I rode it from dealer to home it felt like I had that nuclear reactor in my pocket !!

    Try Captain Itch. Maybe they have a solution for you.  I bought the leather solution from them for my Fatboy Lo

    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.

    Never heard of that before but sounding like a tune problem....un burnt fuel in a red hot pipe when rear cycl kicks in.
