Removed lowers

Took my lowers that I added shortly after getting my bike lastApril 2013 while it was still chilly. My leg roasted in traffic last summer .Took the lowers off yesterday and wow what a difference. While still hot, not roasting. And yes they are vented lowers. Thought it may be good if I decide to ride up Mt Wash during SW instead of hiking up.

have you tried just removing the vent doors? i find that to be a good compromise between having the lowers and completely removing them.

I understand the concept of reality, but find it too confining for a way of life.

Yeah I was going to just remove the doors but since I had to take them apart to do that I just took them off. I like them on better. Nike looks naked

I took my doors off first, then the lowers, added some GADS001, pretty happy, calm air up to and through superslab cruising speeds.

it's pretty easy to do. i remove mine yearly without removing the lowers from the bike.

I live in south Florida and after over a year of riding the RGX without lowers, added them a week or so ago and they look great.. with no vents in place... but you all that say there is no difference in felt engine heat are either are BSing us, live in a very cold area or have no feeling in your legs.. I feel allot more heat. will they go?? I dono yet but maybe. couldn't imagine how hot it would be with stock cated pipes.
