On my old '04, I did all the fixes mentioned including a block off plate (pictured below and circled in blue).
It helped some but was still too hot for summer riding in SW Florida...For me, ride for 6 months (winter), then ride another (or go out early or much later in the day)
Now, when went to Tenn (The Dragon), it was hot but tolerable. If I lived a bit farther north, I'd still have the bike.
