    Default How many 2014 - 2019 RT's are fitted with '13 Heat Scoops? Any benefits? Negatives?

    How many Spyder RT/RTS/RTL's with the 2014 - 2019 bodystyle have installed the 2013 Heat Retention scoops (The scoops under the mirrors for those that might not know).
    And did you find a significant reduction in driver crotch heat? Any negative issues after installing them?

    Yes, it makes a big difference for me. No down side.

    Had them on my 2013 RTL. If I could find them and the installation instructions I would put them on my present Spyder.

    They were put on my 2013 for the recall and they worked so well I put them on my 2015 right after I bought it. Biggest difference on the 2015 was the glove box went from hot to cold. It's pretty obvious that they keep everything under the tupperware much cooler.

    I'd also appreciate some pics like I posted of the scoops on a Black Spyder, ANYONE out there with a Black Spyder with the heat scoops?

    Since I have the '18 Anniversary edition I was pondering adding either some gold or black carbon fiber with gold weave treatment, either to just the front glossy part or the black textured rear part of the scoop. Talking to both wrap shops and hydro-dip shops to see if I can come up with something. Wondered if anyone changed the black on black on black combination.

    The trade off by adding the scoops and no longer being able to run the optional adjustable air deflectors for rider and passenger was not worth the sacrifice of decreasing rider and passenger comfort.

    The use of much better insulation on the underside of the body panels reduced or removed heat while moving and while not moving in traffic or other times.
