Hmm..

Yep. The laws of physics, and more specifically the transfer of thermal energy, is a bitch to overcome.

With that said, now with colder temps here in Colorado, my heated frame is welcomed.

I gotta get a snapshot of my bike in the sun; I've got the same carbon pieces, but they "pop" less because my whole bike is black.

putting covers on the frame isn't a "workaround", it's a solution. you will NOT burn yourself on the carbon covers if installed as described (to create space between the cover and the frame), and hence the hot frame problem is no more.

making the frame itself cooler is like trying to get the engine cases cool enough so they won't burn you when you touch them. although...I do remember riding my '10 in the winter and it was so freaking cold that at stoplights I'd stick my gloved hands right on the engine. no more of that nonsense with heated grips now!

edit: here's a pic from a different thread of my bike with the carbon bits installed. Not the best, but you get the idea:

I have a 10 that did not have a vent in the front of the tank cover...what year is yours because your CF looks like it has a vent in the front?

Capitan--what brand carbon frame covers did you get? Also, do they adhere real securely to the frame and fit flush with no raised areas? I don't have a heat issue, but I do keep marring the same area of the frame with my Rev It pants. I've touched it up but isn't ever going to be perfect and it's going to drive me nuts. I don't plan on doing any other carbon so was wondering if just that one piece would look out of place. Others have said they didn't think it would.

I know you asked Captain, but im going to give my input anyway

I have ilmberger covers, they are secure with the mounting tape that was provided going on two years. They fit perfectly flush, and it's the only CF i have right now and it does not look out of place.

Thanks AW...just what I was looking for. It's either the Ilmberger or the Slingshot Racing. I have an email into SSR because their website say 09-11 and I have a 12. I didn't think there should be any difference to the frame but need to check.

I've found that a lot of the CF I've bought tends to warp a bit, but will go back into shape when taped securely. I taped mine and in some places had to hold them in place for 10-15 seconds to make sure they stuck, but they've stayed secure.

this is what I got:

some better shots of the CF installed. Note the totally trick Yoshimura sprocket cover!
