Hey, I have a 2003 YZ450 with Yoshimura head work and exhaust. I haven't road it in at least six months. I just started it up with the choke on and was letting it warm up. I noticed a strange smell and looked down to see the exhaust pipe coming off the engine was glowing red hot. I've never noticed this before... Also when I turned the fuel on the petcock was leaking a LITTLE bit, guessing it's just a dried up seal or something simple? Is it normal for the bike to get so hot in a minute of warming up?? Is there something I should check after letting the bike sit for so long? Thanks, Steve. *EDIT* I just found this thread about the glowing exhuast. http://www.thumpertalk.com/forum/showthread.php?t=236304 The bike still smelled funny. Is there something I should be aware of if my bike was sitting for a while?
