SCOUT crotch cooler, plain
The top in beautiful buffed Latigo leather, and has a ply of split leather (Suede) on the bottom, so nothing can scratch your motorcycle. Both layers are glued together with industrial cement and double stitched around the edges.
This heat shield comes in black or tan leather, with black or white stitching, and you have an option to add stainless steel studs, and an embossing on it.
In order to install the crotch cooler you remove your seat, lay the heat shield over the frame and mount your seat back down. Pretty simple.
What a big difference with this blocking the heat from coming up. I also wrapped my pipes; together they make a huge difference. I highly recommend this product for the Indian scout. My only recommendation is to make the stitching white to match the stock seat and backrest.
My friend got a studded one for her Springfield and she highly enjoys having it. I’m not sure if hers is more for looks; mine is for blocking the heat.

What a difference! I’ve ridden without in a North Louisiana stop and go, then with. Your crotch will thank you. 😎
Was having a problem with the chrome engine heads burning my inner thigh and this heat shield solved the problem. I added the silver studs on mine to give some detail and the overall appearance was great as well as the quality. My only suggestion is that if you have aftermarket exhaust pipes like I do, you may have the leather edges touching the pipes but luckily mine still fit despite a small part of the edge resting on the pipe.
