Hey yall, Im proud to say I bought a 700XX! I love it! Its nice n quiet so I dont annoy all the neighbors when I ride. Also has tons of power. However I do have a question, last night I was riding after dark. I wasn't pushing it super hard, just riding down some dirt roads, when I noticed the exhaust was red hot from the head up until just around the first bend. I slowed down for a bit and it gradually cooled down. My question is, Is this something I should be worried about and check into, or was the red just more visible in the dark? Edit: It does have the stock exhaust

Check for a restriction in the muffler or pull the spark arrestor off and ride it at night again to see if that changes anything, these things are setup very lean from the factory and any air leak or fuel restriction will make it worse, ie plugged fuel filter. Good Luck
