I haven't really seen this mentioned very much, but it was enough of an issue for me that it prompted me to do something about it. I'm in south Florida USA for reference. Since picking up my bike over the weekend, the temps have been in the low 90's with high humidity. Very hot for April. I have been riding an air cooled 1980 GS550 3 or 4 days a week for 11 years and it has never been uncomfortably hot between my legs. Everything here is stop and go, so things heat up. I noticed pretty quickly that the Scrambler is very warm on the seat. It may just be because of ambient air temps that I noticed it so quickly, but dang it gets hot! Mostly just the front part where it is directly over the engine. Like burning hot. It may not be so bad in milder temps, but for me the front of the seat felt like it was burning my important bits. That may be a welcome feeling in the winter, but we have no real winter here. Anyway, I did something about it. It's not pretty, but it is very effective. I rode about 100 miles yesterday and the problem was gone. Still warm, but no warmer than my body temp. I applied some self adhesive aluminum backed foam (used for HVAC insulation). Much better now.
