Yes, I too remember the FZR not running as hot. Heck, I think my Ducati Monster doesn't even run that hot....

My FZR 600 ran much cooler than my R6 does. It's just an R6 thing, they run hot, especially in hot areas. You can get better heat dissipation by flushing your rad and putting some fresh fluid in there, but it won't change the fact that the engine runs hot and the air cooling pattern directs hot air out towards your upper chins. It's just how it's designed. That said - it's 92 out today. I wore jeans.

R6.... Built for speed, not for comfort.

I wore shorts once (it was 115 outside). There was no hair left on my legs.

Now, Ill wear pants even if its 115...

Think about it...

You're burning your legs in shorts...so if you wear jeans it'll shield your legs from that heat which wont be as hot. Just bring something to change into if you really want...otherwise theres nothin you can do about it

I would really like to see what everyone is talking about - with girls riding shorty shorts and stuff.

do you have pics? we need to know exactly where you put your legs and such, and will try to give suggestions. Try to wear the same gear that you normally wear on the beach (bikini).

You don't have to be d!?k, I have been riding for 20 years and I do not need anyone to tell me how or what I should ride!!!!!!
You asked why the heat from a track engineered race bike is burning your bare legs. I summon the brilliant Bill Engvall to bring closure to this thread...

this is pointless obviously your not going to listen to anyones advice.
jeans or leathers will make you warmer but will help you against the *scolding heat* r6 runs hot my friends runs extremely hot (no hair on his shin) its just going to happen if you want to get defensive cus people are pointing out something that will save your skin from the heat and from road rash then just ignore it, go out ride as you please dont wear gear and dont take anyones advice. just remember when you crash and we see your next post reading (today i got skin grafts) be sure to post pics :toocool:

Sucks this thread isn't worth replying too. I mean they DO sell the R6s for situations like this. Also, the VESPA is a good choice for driving half naked. Either way, lets bring it back to science.

Please post pictures of your seating position in your normal riding attire and we will research the effect. After careful studying of these pictures we will come up with the solution to rid you of this awful problem.

Thank you!!!!!
