Yeah, people have a lot of fun with that one. It's become a kind of initiation thing.

You have Ti pipe with a wall thickness of about .035" carrying exhaust gases that can run over 1500 degrees with the choke on. Add in the aggressive cam timing, and there's a lot of heat in the pipe. Dull red visible at night under the sort of lights you find in the typical garage is about 750 degrees. Bright red under the same conditions is around 900. Stainless steels melt at about 2550, and Titanium at 3660, so there's quite a bit of room to spare.

I never worry about it. Mine does that all the time :thumbsup: :

They made fun of me when I asked the question.

It was your turn in the barrel for not doing a search first.

I was going to ask the same thing but I'm glad I searched first. Some ppl on here was saying the bike is running lean but i was thinking this is a new FI bike still stock, lol

I found this really cool feature of the site, it's called "search". You wouldn't believe what kind of stuff you can dig up using that feature! :foul:

Wow!!! :thumbsup: Would this "SEARCH" feature help me to find my tools from that one ride when the flap on my fanny pack came open, & left a trail of tools for miles around?

... with Ti pipes it seems to glow sooner.


Ti pipes glow sooner and brighter only because they are almost always much thinner (.030-.040" vs. .060" or so for stainless). All metals glow with pretty much the same color and intensity at any give temperature, but with the Ti pipes, there is less metal to heat up, and a less efficient conductive path to the rest of the exhaust system to carry the heat away from the head area.
