Header pipe glowing RED
Posted September 05, 2009 - 02:04 AM
Can anyone advise why my WR450 header exhaust pipe should glow red hot at just over tickover while stationary in a closed garage ?
Could it be tappet clearance issue ?
Also how can you tell if the rear shock needs a gas refill ?

If your header pipe is glowing red it means your rear shock is low on gas.
I thought it was because the muffler bearing needed lubed.

I'll bet it didn't start very easily, and didn't idle well--maybe you had to have the choke ON even though the bike wasn't cold. If so, its definitely a clogged jet.
