so many variables on the jetting issues. you need to post what your jets are now, eleveation you ride at and normal temps.

As far as having the plug out it doesn't hurt and the pipe glowing red is normal when idling for extended periods and it is more noticable in low light conditions.

Back to the jetting. check your plug black =rich white = lean tan =good

do you notice any bog? how bout popping on the decel. these can indicate rich or lean conditions. Someone that lives close to your area will/can give you some recommendations on the jetting.
