Whoa it's hot.!!!!

Post by bohdan »

I thought I have discovered the perfect position for my brand new Ergo highway boards on my 2013 GW. After cold setting the final position it for 2 hours and then taking it down the Interstate, I basically burned my ankles.

It appears that there is a funnel of heat from the radiators that seems to concentrate on the very bottom corner of the exposed radiator. Naturally, this isn't going to work. I guess that I have to reposition the pegs once more with this in mind. I got both the 4.5 and the 6 inch arms for these pegs. Has anybody experienced this and repositioning it, did you have a satisfactory conclusion? Mighty obliged.
