I am thinking about buying the 04 but have heard many things about that underseat exhaust. I have heard many complaints about the amount of heat that it generates in traffic, to the point where it is almost unbearable. For those of you that have this bike already, what have you noticed about the heat being emitted from that exhaust. .

It was about 75 degrees here today (Northern Cal) and I rode for about 4 hours....

To answer your question, when the bike is hot and your stopped it's a bit warm. Nothing close to unbearable tho....
