Very Unusual Overheating Issue
Just took the scoot to Daytona and back and the machine handled beyond all expectations except for one. Coming home we took I-75 to I-10 with the cruise set between 80-90mph (still getting passed of course) consistently for around 4 hours. The heat coming from the left pipe got so intense that the wife's shampoo, moisturizer etc melted several of the bottles. The bottles were at the top of the bag leaning against the scoot side wall. My pipes have been de-cored so you can hear it and that's it for mods. There was a significant amount of black on the outside of the stock chrome exhaust end cap, the right side pipe and bag were fine. I am thinking maybe the front cylinder just got hotter than the rear. Any thoughts or suggestions as to the overheating issue that caused the contents to melt? Thanks!
Oops forgot to mention after this trip the bike has 4500mi on it, stock air breather and plugs
