Hi all iam new here just picked up a black 1000 xp.
So far I really like it having come from a 2011 can am xxc 800
I love the ride. Wow.
The other evening I rode it home in the dark I noticed the exaust
can glowing red hot. I only have 65 miles on it and I did goose it
The last mile home.. when i saw the glowing muffler
I just let it idle to cool it , iam thinking it is from being to rich from breakin?
Anyone else notice this?
It does concern me because I dont want to burn down either
my bike or the forest..

Probably pretty normal, even my lawnmower's exhaust glows red in the dark....

Yep unless you have something with a double walled exhaust like a bike they will glow. Most are fairly thin walled to keep weight down and it doesn't take much to get the temp up to where they glow

I would say probably normal at night, I can see the exhaust on my Honda TRX 700 glow red at night
