I just started up my DRZ for the first time this year... I parked it in December when it snowed and kinda left it until this afternoon. I charged up the battery and it started no problem, ran real good. I left the cover half on it, and it's dark outside... and I noticed after about 10 minutes of idling and the odd burp here and there to piss off my townhouse neighbors that the header pipe was glowing red just out of the cylinder head. I've never noticed it before, and am wondering if it is a normal thing. I've made the exhaust glow in a car in a burnout competition, but I had my foot flat out on the gas for like 3 minutes and it was a shitty demolition race car anyway.
Anyway, it's an 08 DRZ with a full FMF system, jetted and air box mod. Starts and idles great (did before and does now)
Any input would be rad.
