07 vivid/demin DX. My seat gets warm...like really warm. Is this a natural occurance? I switched out the stock with the sundowner...it happened with both. It was warm when the exhaust was silver and now that they are grill painted black.
The dealer said it had nothing to do with the skull valve stem covers on the tires. Any help, or truly creative smartassed comments are welcome.

Mine gets warm after a while. Actually over here in the freezing UK it's a welcome relief!

I took a long ride over the weekend and my caboose was sweating after an hour. It was really warm out and I got a good sunburn but the seat is hot. Even when I was doing 80mph most of the time.

i guess i should clarify.....just cuz im fat does not mean im dumb....this is a motorcycle created heat....not a solar retention of energy due to the suns proximity to earth at this time of year or the color of the seat. which when my seat is covering the seat, im quite sure no solar radiation reaches the seat.............yall missed the ...creativity line didnt ya.......lol. thanks!

Incompressible flows can be equivalently described by the vector potential ψ from which they can be derived. Its determination is made possible by the existence of the right number of boundary conditions. For planar flows, the vector potential reduces to a one-component vector along the normal to the flow plane. This component is the stream function ψ. The same simplification occurs for the vorticity, where ω denotes its unique component, along the normal to the flow plane as well, for planar flows. Both ψ and ω are pseudo-vectors, that is they transform themselves in the opposite way with respect to the proper vectors in a mirror reflection operation. The vorticity is not specifically related to incompressible flow, in contrast to the vector potential. Therefore, any incompressible flow is characterized by two separately defined pseudo-vectors. In other words, the dealer is wrong, it is the skull valve stem covers........DC

Uh.. well.. it is called radiant heat and since it is summer.. OF COURSE IT WILL GET WARM :D In the sun that is.. LOL!

Black gets hotter than anything in the sun.. I thought that was common knowedge.. :stilpoke:

Oh My bad for the last post :D

Yes.. everything black will be hot.. but basically it goes back to being summer agian.. the engine does get hotter in the summer and the heat will get you.. Hell it burns my legs when the fan turns on.. Blows some serious heat back at me. Especially in traffic.. if I am going, I don't notice it at all.
