i contacted yamaha motor corporation (kathleen horder 800 962-7926 ext 7612). she told me yamaha had no complains at that time about the header becoming red hot. she advised me to have my dealer service department check the header at the next service. service department guy told me wrap the header with exhaust wrap. i wrapped the header. what do yall think?
Yeah, they know about it, cause i know for a fact, people on the forums have called them about it..anyways, i wrapped my along timea go, along with making a heat shield over the diff, it helped Temps alot!!
