09 exhuast glowing red

hi all i just picked up my 09 and started it up for the first time with in a minute the exhuast was glowing red is there any reason for this???????????

Let me guess, you were in an area with dim lighting. It is normal for the header to glow. You may be a tad lean on the jetting. You can richen it up and see how it runs.

LOL! Same today as it was seven years ago, when TT started. Timeless question... :lol:

4 stroke headers glow. You can even light your cigarette on them. I don't smoke, but I've given others light before... :excuseme:

It almost caught me a few years ago, luckily I found TT before I panicked.

Yea, it is typical for the headers to glow, but a being lean will make the header glow even faster.

And yes headers can light a cigarette, why would you want to do that i do not know but i have seen it done before.

The timeless answer to the Timeless Question: "Mine does that all the time."

But, whether your situation is normal or not depends on how much and how soon it glows. Red heat, visible in twilight after 40-60 seconds of running is normal. A glow brighter than that, so that it's visible in brighter light, or sooner than that, say within 15 seconds in twilight is a little excessive, and may indicate lean idle mixture.

Why? Because someone needed a light of course...:excuseme:
