Hot clutch cover

Over the last year or so, I have been working on powering up my engine. The end result is I no longer have the heat off the exhaust like I used to with the Cat headers. But I now am noticing that the clutch cover is getting really hot on longer rides. Not quite understanding why. Clutch is not slipping that I can tell, and I thought that oil was separate from the motor oil. So why is it getting so hot? Guess I never noticed it before with all the heat issues. Now that those are cleared up, I find this issue. Can someone explain why? Good thing I always ride with tall boots on.

Illegitimus non carburundum. Or something to that effect. Jack of all trades, master of none.

Heat transfer from engine and transmission. Fiction from primary chain and clutch.
