My XR got very hot one time. Live in the Phx,Az area so it runs in the heat most the time, and very hot in traffic. But it did get extremly hot on the Strip on LasVegas once. I guess it was the lack of air movement on the road with traffic hardly moving. We had gotten to the motel and they asked us to move are bikes to another area. Bikes had only sat maybe 5 minutes. Went ahead and tried to start it, did not want to fire up. Opened the fuel tank and then tried it again, it fired up, possibly vapor lock I believe.
