And right over the engine, now that you mention it.Ken if you think the left gets hot !! check out the right one some time, you can bake bread in there. The pockets are right over the radiators....
I think I see the problem.Odd, my left pocket gets so cold that my Dell MP3 player will shut down with a "Cold Temperature" warning. It won't get much above 30 degrees in that pocket. I was actually thinking of running some ducting into it from the radiator.

What year is your bike? I have an 03 and removed both air ducts that run under the pockets on top of the radiators. I haven't noticed any heat build up, maybe because the air flows thru better.My upper left Fairing compartment, where the 12v adaptor is installed gets warm when on a ride. Thing inside it get warm also, almost hot feeling. Anyone else have that situation?
