Hot Exhausts.

Hi, i own a 1993 Fxlr with a 1600cc conversion plus other mods.
I have removed the covers from the down pipes to have them re-chromed, i put exhaust bandages around the down pipes and went for a ride.
when i got of the bike my right leg had a hole burnt in my overalls.
does this mean my bike is running to hot? also when the bike is ticking over the air filter seems to vibrate quite a bit.
thanks dave.$(KGrHqJHJB!E8e782CmdBPIvYcjzIQ~~60_3.jpg

Well, it definitely means that your legs too close to the exhaust.

But seriously, have you adjusted the carb since the motors been modified? More cubic inches is going to require more fuel.

HI, thanks for the reply, the bike is fitted with a Mikuni 45mm carb which i removed to enable me to remove the fuel tank to allow me to remove the front rocker cover to have it re-chromed which i have since re-fitted, and i also cleaned the carb out but i'm not sure how to set it up correctly. the bike starts but runs abit lumpy.
thanks dave.
