Question Exhaust Question...

I was changing my oil last night. (per Scuzz's Awesome Oil & Filter change pictorial guideline)

As I ran the engine to warm it up, pre oil change (4-5 min's), and ran it again, post oil change (4-5 min's); I noticed that my exhaust was a constant Hot Orange Glow from the engine to just about the heat shield!

I don't have a lot of free time, live in a subdivision, I started my oil change at like midnight or so... so when I ran the machine in my garage, I turned the lights off... didn't want to bring too much attention to my thoughtlessness... So, what I am saying here is that it was DARK in my garage, like total black dark.

But, I was shocked at how bright orange this exhaust was..... is this normal/OK for the exhaust to get that friggin' hot?__________

New machine, 6 hrs. max, 1st oil change...

I spoke to my neighbor this a.m., about how hot my exhaust gets, he's a big sled guy, his comment was Dude, that doesn't sound right!!!

Thanks...

You're welcome!

These run lean from the factory and this translates to higher exhaust temperatures. Nothing to worry about.

If you say so Scuzz... I haven't used the machine for any night riding or anything yet, first time that I had it running in pretty much complete darkness... And, I noticed the Orange - GLOW!!!

I believe you, don't get me wrong. Has anyone else noticed this and have been concerned as well?___

I've run mine at night at Pismo many times. The glow is normal for stock bikes... not just ours. Most are set lean from the factory to meet emissions standards. You can richen up the mix by using an aftermarket efi controller and thus reduce the exhaust temps... However, you need to remember that the bike was set up and meant to run lean in stock form... Think Big 3.

OK, I read the other posts... makes sense, and it is what it is I guess.

With all the free space around the header, the Orange Glow of Heat, any way to affix any type of rack there in that area, nothing to large, but say the size of a little tray that you can place something like those gas station frozen Burritos in for a quick meal out on the trail?_____ Why not harness that heat... Make some Jiffy Pop or something...
