My FMF turns a bright blue clear to the muffler can in the desert. It's normal. Four stroke exhausts are hot! "Avoid direct contact with the skin..." :)

PS: if you want to see something, start your bike an hour after sundown and let it idle in the dark for about 1-3 minutes. Then you can come back and do a search for threads on "my header glows red...&%$#@!" :)

Except for the can, the entire stock exhaust system of a YZ450 is titanium.
