I guess we all need a reminder about people-skills from time to time. :applause:

...Stainless steel pipe on that bike though, not Ti)

You bring up a significant point here. In the first place, most engineers take advantage of the strength of titanium by using less of it than other materials. Ti headers are often no more than 1mm (.040) thick. Combine that with the fact that Ti has a lower "glow temp" than most steel alloys, and your pipe is red in no time.

BTW, searching on the words "header pipe red" produces 71 threads in this forum, 99 in the WR4** forum, and 129 in the YZ/WR250F forum, in case anyone thought they were alone in this. :applause:
