Re: Glowing Red Headers

In stock trim the fueling is on the lean side to pass emissions. When you installed the full system (and I'm assuming you didn't remap the fueling since you didn't mention anything about it) you leaned it out ever further which is probably exacerbating some of that heat buildup. Go they the bike properly fuel mapped.

Re: Glowing Red Headers

What is the lighting when you see the glow? Is it simply just after starting, or after a ride? Pics?
