Anyone here with a Concours 14?

Recommended Posts

Looking to add a heavy weight to my garage.  Only concern is heat,  I get plenty of that on my bird. Do they get really hot too?  (Not concerned about it town, everything gets hot when not moving.

Had one.  Never had the heat issue while wearing jeans or riding pants.  Mesh pants with nothing under it...got a bit warm.

 

They corrected it in later models I believe and Organdonor I think installed the "added fans" work around that I believe solved that for him.

 

Great bike.  It's a lead weight...but fast as FUCK.

 

Not balanced that well either, IMO.

Do/did you have a problem with the heat on your bird?

If you think the Bird was hot, You will likely hate all things Kawasaki with water-cooling.

That the problem I'm running into. 

 

My bird in 90F weather, just scorches my legs through high boots and even leather. I don't get why I'm such a pussy about it.

Yes I agree, my 14R was really bad and I'm temped to turn away from the C14 but everyone I ask says it's a non-issue.

Had a C14, was never an issue for me. I never found the Blackbird to be too hot either.
