Rear suspension reservoir overheat??

Taking my 99 yz 400 around the track and after a good moto, my rear suspension reservoir is pretty damn hot.

Is this normal? I mean I know I get some SICK, HUGE air that would crumple most bikes, but what's up?

I would think that it is from compression and transfer of fluid. Should I make some adjustment?

Let answers rain from the sky O' TT wise ones :)

If you can cook an egg on it, its normal! Maniac

yep its normal...after a 50 mile x-country race my leg starts gettin HOT!

yup, they can reach about 300 degrees.
