Default vision heat issues

I have a 2010 vision 8 ball. There is alot of heat that comes up from the bottom of the bike. Has anyone come up with anything to get rid of this problem?

Ride faster!

There are a few threads on this subject. Take a look at this one: https://www.victoryforums.com/showthread.php?t=9262 to get started.

Please add your bike's year and model to your signature. Here's why.

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.

If highway,
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.
