Question Glowing headpipe

Hello everyone,
I just put on my full HMF exhaust today. I also have the HMF optimizer. The head pipe is glowing red after just a couple minutes. We set the optimizer at 1.5-3.5-4 which helped a little but it still gets cherry red. Any help is much appreciated.
Thanks, Chris.

Isn't it supposed to be set to 1.5-1.5-3.5?

It is about 28*f here in Columbus right now. So my head pipe will always be red every time i ride? Or is where it is so cold causing it to glow more? Thanks, Chris.

1.5-3.5-3.5 was the stock reading when the optimizer was first hooked up. Idk about all this stuff. Its my first build. Thanks, Chris

Chris.. It will get better, but it's also because of the outside temp.

It's the single exhaust port on the head and the cold temps. My Barkers and Sparks exhaust both do it when it's 20*f outside.
