It's weird. I heard of that complaint a lot prior to buying my '17. I ride mine and never feel any real extra heat coming my way....no different from all my other bikes I've had. Of course, if I were to touch near the pipe or on the frame...it'd be hot...but I don't feel any extra heat while riding. I never really even think about it and my legs don't hit any metal while riding.
I HAVE painted the cat with the VHT FlameProof matte black paint, but that was just for cosmetics...doubt it does anything for heat. I also have an Austin Racing slip on, but that's after the cat.
