I have had my '06 Tiger since early Oct. During this time I have noted that my left leg gets an extrodinary amount of heat. What the heck is dropping all the heat on this side? Is this a normal function?

Thanks,
-Jim

Seems strange to me, too. I had a 94 Daytona that I wouldn't use to commute in summer because it cooked my legs so much. Got the Tiger and used it all summer and I haven't noticed any legburn with it. Maybe its just a subjective thing, one mans idea of hot might be anothers idea of comfy?

Maybe let it break-in some more.
My 06 Sprint was a toaster up to about 4000 miles, and now it seems normal.
Riding boots help also, but you probably have them already?

When I had the crossed over coolant lines problem on mine, I noticed that the left side of the radiator got hot whilst the right side stayed cool(ish). Just to add another peice of (probably useless) information.
