I had an '04 Fat Boy that I used Kuryakyn heat deflectors to prevent the leg burn. I too am 5 feet and had a smaller solo seat on the bike. Made a big difference.

I agree with you about the heat that this bad boy puts off! The size of my '08 Anniversary edition is not an issue, as I am 5-feet-8. I added pipes, bags, sissy bar, and a low windshield. Another pro is the 6 speed transmission, thus, making this bike my dream machine! Harley made a lot of changes between this one and my '02 Custom Fat Boy.

I have a 2009 Ultra Classic Electra Glide and I have the same heating problem. I started using Royal Purple 20W50 Max cycle oil and it decresed my heat issue, but it comes at the huge price of $15.99 each quart.
