You may be lean on your jetting. Idle too long and the pipe will go glowing red hot no matter what your jetting is.

The glowing pipe is normal, if you let it idle for more than a minute. These bikes are not built to idle for long periods. There have been dozens of posts about this, nothing to worry about.
