Test rode a used 2000 WR 400 this evening and noticed that the first 4 inches of head pipe was glowing red hot. It was this way pretty much right off of start up and after 5 minutes of riding. Owner says it's always been that way since new. Is this normal?

Also, anybody know if this bike can be made street legal in Washington state?
