Heat during low speed/traffic or highway?
Unhook your O2 sensors, install a VFCIII reducing lean engine operation since it will run hotter UNLESS the CA emmisions is going to get you. If it is heat around the thighs at lower speeds, I seen a Vision with heat gaurds that didnt look too bad. For the life of me I cant remember who on here makes the ones for the XCT's but unsure if he did Vision's too.
Mixed thoughts on the lowers from differnt riders. I have them and I like them but I don't have an 8ball either so may take away from your look/lines. I keep mine turned in almost all the way a nice flow of air, keeps everything pretty decent up to around 100 so far. I got 10K on the clear plastic lowers, no cracking, adjustment issues or any other problems.
