Thanks JTS. I've reached out to him via PM. Hopefully he can give me some guidance.

Re: KTM 1190 Heat Reduction Advise

Does it just clamp to the frame by fasting the two pieces together?

That's what I'd think but I haven't worked out how that could work yet.

I know I probably have a big 'duh' moment coming when I either work it out or someone gives me the heads up.

There's only 2 pieces of bracket total so I'd assume one per side

Re: KTM 1190 Heat Reduction Advise

Ok, I figured it out. Bought the needed hardware and the covers are now installed on the bike. In the end had to remove the lower passenger peg bolts and replace with longer bolts that protrude past the frame long enough to slide the cover bracket over and put on a washer and nylon lock nut. Took me longer to work it out than it should but at least it'd done now.

Haven't ridden it since the installation because it's so cold out but hopefully will have an opportunity in the next few weeks. Not holding out much, IF any, hope that this will contribute that much but maybe I'll be surprised.

There's one more thing I'd like to try and that's to install the Rottweiler intake. Apparently it opens up the area under the tank and allows airflow to pass through that area and into the rear header area.

The last option would be to gut the catalytic converter. If that doesn't work then I need to decide if I can live with whatever heat is left.
