Why would this happen?

Heres where the problem came in....
As I started the bike last night, which seemed to start fine, I let it idle for about 1-2 minutes and looked down to find that my header was GLOWING RED!!! Needless to say this scared the $h1t outta me so I immediately shut the bike off. What perplexes me is that yes the bike should run leaner without the airbox thing, but not really at an idle I wouldn't think. Also I don't see that cutting the throttle stop would even matter when the bike is idling. I checked the rubber boots on both ends of the carb. for a huge air leak and they were both sealed tight. Surely these two mods can't make such a difference at idle that the header would glow. Someone please give me some input????
Also I called to order the GYT-R muffler insert and the dealer here said $61.99 and I know alot of you said you got yours for $40.00. Where can I get one for that price online? Also I'm waiting till I get the insert then I'm gonna re-jet. Any body with only these mods if you could tell me what jets worked well for you so I have a baseline....Thanks fellas? Chuck

I'd look at the PMB insert. I bought the GYRT one and I think if I did it again, I'd buy the other one. Same price. If you are dead set on the GYRT, I'll sell you mine.
