Hi guyz,

First of all I proudly announce that I moved here from the naked section :patriot:
I bought a '00 929 RR and just selling my 919 Hornet. Since I'm new to sportbikes I think I'll have some stupid questions... I'm sorry in advance :idunno:
The first strange thing is when I go slow in the traffic and the engine temperature rises the frame also starts heating. By the time the coolant is about 100 C the frame is so hot it almost burns my knee. Is it natural behavior or is there something wrong?

Yes, it's natural. If you're wearing leathers it shouldn't bother you...

Yes, in leathers I haven't noticed it only in jeans. But it's rare that I ride in jeans anyway. Only I was a bit confused about it. Thanks for the info!

ya they get hot alright! The 954 I had felt like it got real hot - not noticed it quite as much with the 929 but its does definitely get hot.
