The Suzuki gel seat is known to have a problem when it's left sitting, otherwise no, it's not typical.

A sheepskin seat cover will probably avoid the problem, but unless you have very sensitive balls (FWIW something I don't want to know) there's very little engine heat coming up through the seat normally.

The only issue, tangential to grantizzle's, that I've ever heard about is that sometimes the engine vibes can come up through the stock seat and cause one's heirlooms to tingle. This is allegedly due to the forward slope of the pilot's portion of the stock seat.

Never read about any heat issues, though.

I need to take a long ride on my stock seat again.

I got a gel seat and a sheepskin and on a hot day my seat gets hot. I was thinking of putting something under the seat to deflect the radiant heat, like "bubble wrap" its 3 layers of foil and 2 layers of bubble plastic. Used under metal roofs to deflect heat.

Bought a gel seat and used it for a couple of months on my 1000. After a little time in the sun, it would quickly roast chestnuts or any other kind that were in close proximity. Wasn't any more comfortable than the stock seat anyway so luckily I got it sold. :thumbup:

Bead seat,, Walmart brand or motorcycle brand,, keeps the air flow to the hot parts,,,
Could find a picture with the VEE
But here is a walmart one on the ST
Use a beaded seat cover and you'll never know the bike has been sitting in the hot sun all afternoon.
