R1 FRIES my left leg.

Anyone else have this problem?
I have a 2013 R1 and if I'm doing anything less than 50mph it friggin ROASTS my left calf right through my pants. It's literally TOO hot to keep my foot on the peg.
I actually take my foot off the peg most of the time or put the heel of my boot on it.
Right side is only slightly warm. Engine is fine. Running 185į at freeway speeds and about 205 in traffic or idle.

The peg is hot or the exhaust system? My dual sport runs hot (4s), even with a heat shield.. If I go on long trips, I wear my taller boots..but it sure about your situation..

And how long did it take you to be a ? Next time maybe just the links would suffice.

The links say nothing. Just sarcasm. If you know anything about the R1 the header is "basically" symmetrical up front and I'm not getting heat from the header. It's radiation directly out from where my leg is when my foot is on the rearset.
Also, you took less time to find shitheads that give great advice like on your leg or carry a water bottle.

So - has anyone here had the experience with an R1 of your leg getting so hot - WITH PANTS ON - that you literally can't keep your foot on the peg? What did you do about it? And guess what - I already put a shield there. No help.

I put my hand down there and I can't seem to feel it radiating out.

Now, just to keep in the sarcasm of the thread, I'd like Shooley to hold his face against my header and then against the side of my engine and tell me which one is hotter.

Remove the cat and wrap the pipe? Just the nature of the beast man. The r6 gets pretty toasty too if you don't have those plastic pieces in place under the mid-fairings.

Question, so I have some wrap for mine, but then read that his stuff has asbestos in it... Thinking that might be toxic, right? Or, no?

I would think if it did have asbestos in it, they wouldn't be able to sell it in the U.S.. I'll go out on a limb and say that assertion would be false. It does have fiberglass in it though, so be careful when removing old, dry and cracking wrap.

Will do, but I didn't get it from the store... If that helps any. My bf's nephew gave it to me after he wrapped his Harley... I didn't question at time, but I think I'm going to go get some fiberglass stuff, just to be certain.

There isn't any asbestos used in wrap anymore, so you're good to use the stuff you have.

If your wrap does indeed contain asbestos (which I could believe if it was oooooold), then the only real danger would be if it ejects particles into the air. Standard operating procedure for asbestos is often "leave it alone" unless it's in danger of become airborn. The problem is when you breath in particles of it and it lodges itself into your lungs. I wouldn't use wrap that I knew has asbestos in it cause it's not like the wrap is terribly expensive anyway but you're only at risk if it particulates and you breath it (so if it is scraped, grinded, torn, etc.)

I thought I "heard" (No- I haven't researched it) that wrapping can cause excess heat build up on the head. T - F ??
Also, I don't have a cat....... well, not on my bike.... shhhh-

I do have a cat cat named Carlos.

nope, wrap it up. If it makes you feel better, you don't really need to wrap the entire system. Mid-pipe/header joint back would suffice.

Yeah, i should have remembered that yamaha limited their sales of the R1 to the houston area

How dare I suggest that the OP use common sense and provide him with links to worldwide yamaha forums that may have stickies with his problem and possible remedies to fix it.

Bad Schooley!! Bad!
