Re: DRZ experts inside

Very thin wall header tube on a drz
Will glow in just a few min sitting still with no airflow

Hit it with the temp gun and it was over 500*.

Pushed in the choke and it returned to low idle.
Temp dropped to about 380* and the glow went away.

This can't be normal.

The glow indicates a lean condition, correct?
Lean at 1/2 choke?

Re: DRZ experts inside

Mitch that is a full Yosh header, the one I had on my TLR/TLS all glowed. The one on my Superduke 1290 (ti) was very nice.
