Good day 


My son got a WR426F bike is riding not bad but the header pipe heats up very quickly just around the block then it is red hot. Is this normal for this machine?

Yes. It'll be glowing red pretty quick if the bike isn't moving.

Yeah you can't just watch the bike idling in the driveway you gotta ride.

It may be normal as Hillbilly says, but since the bike is new to your son, he'd better rule out the previous owner running jetting too lean.
