EXHAUST HEADERS GLOW RED HOT
« on: April 20, 2012, 04:45:53 PM »
I picked up my Crosstourer this afternoon. I noticed when the stationary bike is at fast idle and you rev it few times, the front headers start to glow red hot. :156:

I frantically called my Honda dealer, but they said this is normal.

Temperature gauge is at 3 bars.

Is this normal ???

But the red is also stunning.

I had a difficult time this morning choosing between red and the silver bikes while they were still in the crates.

I didn't have that difficult choice. I could have black or silver - and silver looks so good - no contest really. It is probably just as well there was no red to confuse me!  :087:

Air4 CE1 .. Pretty normal I would say  , its bloody hot there and the header walls are only a couplle of mms .... On my GS and KTM they used to light up the garage at night :062: withthe pipes glowing back to almost the   collector box on the GS and even further on the KTM  until i fitted Akro's!!!! :062:   the good thing is that you dont see it in daylight ,  or pherhaps just a dull brown..
