Hello everyone I am sort of new to TT but I read the posts quite a bit. I have a 01 WR 426F. The other day I rode for a few hours and at the end of the day I was messing around popping wheelies and went a little far back. Ooops! Well I got up started it up and everything was running fine. The next week I decided to do the gray wire mod. I did it and got everything put back together. It was nighttime before I was done and started it up for a few minutes then I rode it around the block and I noticed the exhaust
pipe coming out of the engine was red hot! The only reason I noticed this was because it was dark and I could see the glow from underneath the bike. Is this normal? I only had it running for 5 minutes at the most and never got out of third gear. The next day I put the gray wire back together and it is still doing the same thing. I don’t know very much about this motorcycle but the basics and just wanted to get a few opinions before I take it into the shop. So again, is it normal on startup for the exhaust to be glowing red-hot?
