How hot does an after market header get? I put one on and it got very hot to the point where it started to burn my pants. Just wondering if it normal and I need to adjust my riding. I know I can always put my heat shields on but I would hate to cover up the pipe.
initially, when buyed this super atv
the heat was really high,
the leg, always red,
then I removed all the pieces that I considered not fundamental,
quad lost 25 pounds
I increased the air in the filter,
and changed oil with a 10w30 Castrol power, not racing,
but the normal (blend)
However, the heat has decreased a lot,
I no longer feel this annoyance,
I do not know if it's suggestion,
but, I do not think so.
10w30, I think it's not the best,
better 10w40, I will change soon,
10w40 does not lose pressure like 10w30,
when the engine is very hot,
but this is another story.
Mine has the stock head pipe with an FMF muffler. I have attempted to tune it with a programmer. I think it is as good as I will be able to get it. I have considered taking it to ehs but he requires you to buy his programmer.
