Your bike is running hot because the fuel air mixture is lean. You need to take it to a shop that has a dyno and an exhaust gas analyzer and have them adjust the fuel air mixture down to about 13.5:1. Now, it's not just a simple turn of a screw somewhere. I'm not a Twin Cam mechanic. I work on the older bikes that the dealers won't touch anymore like Shovelheads, Panheads, Ironheads, and I do work on Evos. No Twinkies. But, I've seen this done even on Evos with carbs. You may have to purchase some electronic device or something but that's the only way I know to cool the engine down. EPA regs causes things like this.

My 2003 Electraglide seems really hot, thigh burning hot, riding back from Oregon yesterday in 90 degree weather. I could barely stand teh heat stopping at lights. The fuel had 10% ethanol in it. Woul

Hi Lorena, and the usual suspects are:
1. Insufficient oil supply or oil not circulating.
2. Insufficient air flow over the engine.
3. Heavy carbon deposit in combustion chamber.
4. Ignition timing retarded due to faulty MAP, CKP and/or CMP sensors.
5. Leaking intake or exhaust valve.
6. No oil cooler.
7. Normal engine oil tempurature 180-220 degrees.
Good luck and have nice day.
