I was puttin' around last night and stopped for a beverage. As I got off the bike an orange glow from the engine area caught my eye... the header pipe for the rear cylinder was HOT. I am still in the break-in period, have not installed the Stage 1 yet, and had been taking it easy just puttin' around town.
When I got back on the bike I kept an eye on it, and yes... any load what so ever will get that pipe to glow. While going down the road I can see the reflection off the chrome cover for the front drive pulley.
So... Is this normal??
