    Default Heat deflector

    Hello, I have two issues...1) my spyder's temp gauge runs about 3 bars from maximum. It runs fine. I just rode it over 100miles without it overheating. The fluid levels are full. Is this normal? 2) Is there a heat deflector? The heat coming off the motor is too much for the boss lady. Thank you!

    First of all; Welcome to the Parteee!
    I think that we might need a little bit of information about just which model Spyder you're riding in order to give you any decent advice...

    You are in Arkansas in the summer time, what did you expect?
    In hot climate, engine temps regularly fluctuate between 4-5 bars, depending on model and when the fan kicks on. You may hit 6 bars now and then... especially sitting in traffic. Not to worry. There are many threads on the topic, try some searches and you will learn more than you wanted to know.

    Default Thanks

    Thank you all for the input. It is hot in Arkansas (102 last weekend), and it is expected, but just wanting to make sure. I have a 2009 Spyder GS. It does have the Hindle exhaust, but that is all for "performance" mods.

    Just in case you weren't aware, you have the authority (and heck of a nice guy) on Spyder heat management in the same state as you. His name is Harvey Clark but he goes by "Spyderpops". A quick google search will turn him up. He is a site sponsor and has a shop near Hot Springs. Look him up, do a little research, and ask the questions.

    Let me see if I can sum it up for you:

    If you are not in limp mode-you are not overheated.
    If the fan relay and the fan are working you won't go into limp mode.
    If the fan relay and the fan are not working you will go into limp mode, especially in slow driving.
    The SpyderPops stuff is great but won't fix a cooling system defect.
