In hot weather or slow in-town traffic in warm weather, my '96 K1100rs runs so hot that the aluminum tank roasts the inside of my legs. My local dealer found an metallic, reflective heat resistant material apparently designed as an option for the RT and lined the underside of the tank and side panels, but in the summer, the tank will still burn my legs. The fan operates normally and coolant levels are fine.
Can anyone tell me if this is normal? Hard to believe that BMW would allow such a design flaw go into a production bike. Any input would be appreciated.
