Nathang, I can understand it from a clold start but I am seeing it from rides I take like after 30 min or so, I think you should take a close look at your rear head pipe when it really dark and make sure to look behind the heat shield too. let me know if yours glow a Dull orange...

If your lighter takes a crap you can light up your BLUNT on it , But , It does leave a mess on the exhaust pipe, if it isn't hot enough.. stuff sticks ..
I have seen it done .
I have never , " not many times ", ever done it ...

One of the reasons the exhaust glows is because of the very late opening exhaust valves on the stock cams in conjunction with the lean EPA mandated mixtures. The EPA wants to hold all that exhaust in there to make sure every last molecule of fuel is burned and no unburned fuel from the intake charge comes out. When it finally does open the resulting exhaust is VERY hot, and yes, your pipes can glow, probably a dull red. One of the benefits of an aftermarket cam is the increased overlap, which, among other things, cools the exhaust area of the head and header pipe by letting the exhaust out earlier.
