My R1 tends to run hot. There is no problem with the bike ... it runs great. But at low revs I've noticed it runs ... HOT!
Does anyone know of some after-market add-on that I can use to dissipate the heat from the engine. It's tough to ride all day when "you're on fire".

just how "HOT" is it getting?????? that would help alot if you added the actual tempature reading your seeing, kinda normal to see temps of 200-214 in stop and go and lower speeds

upwards around 220-230 in stop and go traffic is normal for liter bikes,but it still sucks.I also have an 05 r1 and it runs hot but i try to stay in a higher gear when i can plus it saves gas.But as far as aftermarket stuff i dont think there is anything you can do about it, to keep your seat from getting TOO hot you can buy some heat reflective material to put above the exhaust under the seat.Good luck and if you happen to find a cure post it up.
