Today I got my 03 450 street legal, after driving around the neighborhood, around 30 to 40 mph, pulled in the driveway and about four inches of my header pipe was red. Is that common? :naughty:

If you had been stopped for a couple of minutes, it's normal. If you had JUST stopped, then it could be too lean.
