    I do not recommend the Klim Induction pants for this bike. They are great pants, and on a bike with better heat management  they work fantastic! But the F900 pushes hot air from the radiator straight into the mesh on the front of the left shin. I can still feel the burn the next day. Perhaps a set of Latitude pants or other thicker riding pants will protect from the heat better.

    Try a Tiger Explorer in that sort of temp and THEN you will know what extreme engine heat is........... :087:   They do have a problem to extent that I covered the underside of the rider seat in Aluminium take to reflect the heat away !  With only 2 pots engine is narrower so really can't be that bed can it?  :190:
