In my experience, 426's run quite hot. My 426's header would glow after idling for a few minutes and boiled over a few times while stuck on a muddy slope, even with engine ice. If you're just sitting there idling, your bike cant cool itself because no air is being pushed through the radiator. Its like running on a treadmill in a ski suit.
And this may come as a surprise, but your exhaust is supposed to be hot.
