I just installed my ehs big 3 and had it just idling and I saw it stArt to glow red right at the head/ exhaust port, Granted it was at night but I never noticed my stock header glow. I thought maybe it's running lean but there is no pinging etc and the bike runs strong as hell after the mods, Just wanna make sure I'm on the up and up.

My stock setting my factory head pipe would glow. Put programmer on and it doesn't glow. I would say you are a little lean, is aftermarket header thinner metal than factory header.

Thinner metals require less heat to glow, they lso cool off a lot quicker. I say check plug, if it its light brown should be ok. But other more knowledgeable guys will chime in.

Yeah, you are fine. Mine glows....especially when I am in a tug of war w/ a raptor 700. It really glows then :)

Quite normal... also good for heating up lunch or dinner. Wrap a Piroshki or hot pocket in aluminum foil and set on hot pipe... wait a few minutes and you have lunch.

did not see a glow on my barker header but that thing did change color. I am set up from ehs this 700 rips and i was thinking the same thing , whats up or is that just the way it is. the header looks like it has a heat treat on it now.
