Exhaust Temp Question

Recommended Posts

Just curious if this is normal. I have the MRDSSW and 3x3 and rejet ( I think its right ) with the extended screw. I noticed the exhaust header, kind of right at the engine is purple to blue in colour and I was wondering if it was normal. My riding is mostly city with the occaisional bit of trail riding tossed in.

Normal. The pipe is tinwall and its' outside temp is close to the inside, over 1000 degrees!

 

If you let the bike idle at night, the header will even glow red, though bikes are not meant to sit and idel, they depend on airflow to get rid of the heat.

Perfect, thank you. Was worried I might have had it a tad lean. Didn't think the wall thickness was so thin . Thanks again.
