Red Hot Header pipe.

Recommended Posts

Ok guys I have a question on something that I wasnt sure was normal. I was riding my 250 the other night and since it was dark I noticed that my header pipe was glowing red hot like the brakes on a Le mans car. I have done the throttle stop, gray wire, and exhaust baffle mods. Does this sound normal?

On the new owners thread it says "2) the header CAN and WILL glow red if you let it idle without any air flow over it. " just for more info click on the thread :cry:

Yeh its normal, but remember that these bikes shouldnt sit idling or running with no air flow for extended time.

I have lit a cigarette on the header when the lighter got wet on the trail. Makes a good hand warmer as well.
