May want to check your driving. I wear shorts all the time in my 2017 teryx4 LE and get hot but not enough to burn my leg...

I learned the value of low range for speeds under 20 mph and hills and high range for 20 and above or flat ground etc. I saw some members posting here and too be honest the owners manual doesn't mention the speed but figured id try it and so far seems to work nicely. You could try some low range/high range rides and see if the heat feels any different. Also have you checked your radiator fins and coolant bottle to make sure everything to topped off

Iím actually calling the dealership tomorrow because of the same issue. As stated above, itís nice during the winter. Itís not nice when itís 107 in South Texas. Mine gets so hot it makes me wonder if the heat shielding was never installed.

There should be a heat shield right by driver leg behind plastic.I would pull the plastic off and look, not very hard to do. Also I removed my cat. It helped with over all temp. Inside the t4.

I put an aluminized heat barrier (with adheasive) inside all the kick plates and it has made a lot of difference. Looking at 2 to 2-1/2 hours to take the colsole and kick plates off, then the puzzle to get them back together. My mechanic said he saw where someone put something rubber backed insulation, and it caught fire.

Thay are naturally hot as the engine is right between the front seats.

I put Noice brand heat and sound insulation inside all the foot well panels. Get the right clip removal tool and it's easy to do, just time consuming. I also covered the openings under the seats, this is where a LOT of the heat and dust came in to the cab. This helped a lot with the heat and dust and helped reduce noise a bit.

Love to ride!

I have heard in some other threads that these machines have cats on them and that removing them also gets rid of a lot of heat. Can anyone confirm that? Because if its true, I'm ripping mine out ASAP

Check out their videos

You should check out the videos on YouTube by Deranged Off-Road. They have 2 videos showing 1) an install of heat shielding on a Teryx 4 and then 2) the results of what the shielding did. I am thinking of doing something similar but not quite to the same extent they did,
