Most aftermarket header pipes are thinner walled. They will glow really bad at night. Most peoples on here glow at night. Just check spark plug to make sure but glowing is normal.

I got mine January of 06 and when I went for my initial rides, it was glowing red. Still does, perhaps F/A ratio isn't right on the point even at stock state.

I you think 700 headers glow bad, you should see YFZ headers. My 06' burnt a hole in many pairs of jeans. I used to light cig's off of it.

my 666cc raptor glows so well it lights up the ground and shit around it after 5 mins of riding or idling sometimes even before 5 mins of running you can see it glowing in daylight :eek:

I'm thinking its normal. Both our 2 week old 700's do it. Kinda cool!

Ha ha.... I was going to say the same thing. Yfz headers glow like crazy...no matter how well its tuned/jetted.
700 headers glow.....as do a lot of sport quads......its perfectly normal to have some glowing. Just check your spark plug and make sure it checks right! :thumbsup:
