Cherry Red Pipe

Question, is this normal for a pipe to glow like that, or should I haul this thing back to the dealer?

once you swap the throttle stop, cut the grey wire, pull the air box snorkle, rejet, and pull the AIS - go out and spank that Honda. all these free mods are easy.
those CRF450X's are nice bikes, but i'm partial to the WR
Here's a couple of good links for tutorials:

Thanks again for all the info.... you guys make me feel a whole lot better!
I am looking forward to meeting my bud on the CRF again... (snicker, snicker).

Uncork the pipe, rejet the carb (less than 4 hours of easy work), then go challenge 450X. That alone will do wonders for you.

First ride was still impressive, in spite of not making the mods yet. I love the suspension on this bike. The digital computer is very nice too. Red or Blue they are all good, and I just love to ride.
