I have been reading quite a few posts recently and see a lot mentioned about XCT heat issues. Previously I owned a 2011 Vision Tour and put over 16K miles on her in two years. I had the OEM adjustable lowers on her. I never had any issue with heat for me or any passenger I might be carrying. I live in southern AZ and have ridden in some pretty hot temps and never felt uncomfortable. With that said, why is the XCT any different? It is the same power plant. Is it because of the air management system on the XCT? I'm just not understanding I guess. I am thinking seriously about getting a XCT but am concerned with the heat issue you all are mentioning.
