Head pipe Question??

Hi..I just brought my new xx home last night..So today I'm just warming it up and staring at it cause the weathers not so nice here in New Jersey..I look across the garage at the xx and the head pipe is glowing red!!!I've had many bikes with many different pipes and never saw that..I called the dealer and they told me it's ok..they said Honda made the head pipe thinner than the older pipes were made..They said they've had alot've calls on this..Is this true??..The xx runs fine..Just kind've worried me..Thoughts??.. Thanks..PS..The xx looks soooo much better in person than it does in the pics..I hope it doesn't hurt sales....

You know, I've never run mine in the dark. My apartment complex frowns upon it. :(

A tune can help that but not cure it completely.
