Heat Problem Solved!

I think we have the heat issue on the C14 solved. Thanks to info from Deron Gene cut up a truck mud flap and stuffed it behind the fairing. Definitely a noticeable difference! Given we haven't had the 100+ weather to try it out in but you can tell that there is an improvement. Yeah!!!!!!!

Great news! I'm so glad to hear this. Will be interested to know if it works well when it gets really hot again.

Yeah it was pretty bad but we did take it through town on a fairly hot day and what would have shot the temp right up didn't seem to change it at all.

((((Julie)))) Can't wait to see you next summer! I think it's going to be a long winter this year.

No kidding. And I don't have a nice trip to Europe to look forward to this winter. But there's a lot to look forward to next summer!

That is great Bek......I'm glad we could get it fixed, when I saw that fix I knew it would work for you.

Appliances and electronic devices derive their power from smoke. If the smoke escapes, they will no longer work
