red hot header pipe?

Recommended Posts

This might be silly, but I've only owned 2 strokes and this is my first 4 stroke.  After washing my bike today I started it to help dry it out and it was starting to get dark outside and I noticed my header turned red hot.  Is this normal?  I never noticed the pipe turn red like that before.

Is it possible the power washer soaked the air filter and restricted some air so it ran a little lean and hotter then normal?

It's normal and covered in the FAQs.  Good info in that section and worth the 2 minutes it takes to read.  That's about the longest I'd idle your bike as well.
