Red Hot Headpipe Normal?

Test rode a used 2000 WR 400 this evening and noticed that the first 4 inches of head pipe was glowing red hot. It was this way pretty much right off of start up and after 5 minutes of riding. Owner says it's always been that way since new. Is this normal?

Also, anybody know if this bike can be made street legal in Washington state?


Yes it is normal.

Thats how I light my cigars.

How else you supposed to roast marshmellows on the trail?? You gotta love them Yami engineers ! They think of everything. :)
