Default Re: How hot?

if it's running properly, heat really isn't an issue. i've burnt my leg on the head before (only after getting sideswiped by a car and having my leg forced onto it as i used her car for a berm,) and i was wearing shorts, and the exhaust will definitely get hot enough to melt your shoes or burn a hole in your pants (or, stop that nosy dog from pi ssing on it, after he touches his nose to it first.)

but i run my bike for hours non-stop at WOT in temps as hot as 100 degrees, and haven't had any problems so far.
