I've noticed alot of posts about the glowing head pipe....... Alot of people also say its normal and to be expected. I must say that this has never happened to me. my pipe does not get that hot and does not glow so i dont know what everyone else is talking about. My bike is all stock as far as the motor and exhaust goes.

the glowing will only last a little while. and it is normal. once the pipe changes color you cant see the glowing. my alba pipe on my raptor did that when i first ran it so i called the dealer :thumbsup: and they said its normal. so all is good.
