Is it normal for the Exhaust pipe to get so discolored. Bike is about 3 weeks old, and just want to make sure all is good before the warranty drops.

I have seen this alot on 450's, so I believe its common. Usually though when a pipe blues in color, the bike is running lean.

The titanium pipe will glow red. Ride it at night and you will see it. Because of the material, Titanium, it will discolor to a purple blue. Totally normal. It is important to get it jetted properly. I hope this helps. Oh it will happen on a WR or a YZ
