B3 r&g engine cover causing heat?

Has anyone experienced their bike become hotter after installing R&G engine sliders?

According to their tech guy, when the covers where removed, the temp on the frame dropped by 10degrees.

There’s a substantial amount of heat radiating out of the trellis frame to a point of not being able to ride it. 😞 & they can’t seem to figure out what the issue is. Their answer is “ It’s an MV. They run hot”

Any feedback would be greatly appreciated.

I had frame sliders on my Brutale, not R & G they were Puig. I removed them at the advice of tech. that works on my bike. He told the fuel tank was designed to protect the frame in the event of a crash, and that using aftermarket frame sliders could actually cause damage to the frame in a crash. I did remove them and I was hit and while riding and he was correct the fuel tank did protect the frame. The problem is getting a new fuel tank, but there wasn't a scratch on the frame.

Bikes:

2016 MV Agusta Brutale 800 RR
2015 Triumph Street Triple R

Thanks for the advise. I wonder if that’s the same issue with the engine covers. Mind if I ask what tech told you this?
