Short question, Norge owners, have you experienced very high temps almost to point of blistering skin on your right calve? If so what is the fix?
Long explanation, my 07 Norge now has 42,000, I have put on 22,000, Yesterday I made a short run for breakfast, total time on bike a little over 1 hour ( 1 hour break between 1/2 hour ride ) with ave speed 65-70, outside temp upper 80-91 F. With in 10 minutes from start I noticed my right calve being unusually hot, I spread my knees out but it didnít seem to make noticeable change. I wear Aero stitch 2 piece suit, mid cave height insulated leather boots, so Iím somewhat protected from engine heat usually, and in the 22,000 miles Iíve put on this bike Iíve never noticed this before. When we got to restaurant I checked calve very hot and red. On the return ride I immediately experienced the intense heat, the wind speed and direction had not changed, temp had gone to 90-91 F. Very uncomfortable all the way home, my left leg was warm but not that hot, I tend to ride with my heels on the passenger pegs to relieve lower back stresses, when ever Iím on open roads. But despite trying multiple leg foot positions there was no change or relief from the heat. When I got home the right calve was red and raised almost pre blistering. 24 hours later redness has decreased but still noticeable.
The Norge currently has the lowers of the fairing removed, but Iíve ridden it this way for the last 2 years and never experienced this level of heat. Even all day driving across South Dakota in late July with 90 + temps.
So my question is: Is this level of heat just on the right side an indication of something mechanical? itís not using oil,I donít see oil leaks and havenít noticed change in performance.
Any thoughts, similar experiences or suggestions?
