2021 S1000RR M Sport
I have no issues with any of it. My feet do get a tad hot sometimes but adrenaline keeps me distracted.
A bit off topic, but here in my little town shorts, tank tops, flip flops (or barefeet) are standard fare. Also not fastening ones helmet is the norm. I personally know 3 people who received needless head injuries because their helmets flew off during accidents. Crazy....crazy.I can't stand seeing squids in shorts, or shorts and flip flops. Don't wave at me squid.
I had the same problem but fixed it by buying carbon fiber frame covers and used heat resistant silicone and it worked a treat and it looks sweetSo i recently purchased my first s1000rr(2015) and noticed the frame was extremely hot and i did some searching on here to see if it was normal and apparently its been an issue since the very beginning. My question is, what can be done to avoid from burning the inside of my knees!?
My second question is, is it normal for the bike to be running around 220 degrees(f) ? That seems a little to hot for me! I have some engine ice but I'm waiting till my first service to replace it.
Awesome!! I have been looking for a solution to the hot pegs. Any more details on the silicone and any tips on the process.I had the same problem but fixed it by buying carbon fiber frame covers and used heat resistant silicone and it worked a treat and it looks sweet
If you have a 2015-2018, putting C/F covers on the frame will help protect your thighs but aren't going to cure your blazing hot footpegs. That's due to those blazing hot catalytic converters right under your feet running at 1,200-1,800deg F! Best thing to do to cure it is to get a full exhaust system. I thought about wrapping the cats in Thermotec "asbestos" wrap, but I was not able to get any feedback from BMW about if the cats would overheat being wrapped like that. You could gut the cats, but opening them up and then re-welding them is the issue.Awesome!! I have been looking for a solution to the hot pegs.

Right, but the cats are by FAR the hottest part of the engine, due to their very nature, and they're right under your feet, so removing them WILL help considerably.I have no cats. Pegs still get hot. Its the frame conducting, always has been.
