Actually it's pretty common on GSXR's especially if they have aftermarket headers. You can really see it at night.
If the bike is running well I wouldn't worry much about it.

If you're still really concerned over it, feel free to bring it by and I'll look at it, no charge.

Del,
As far as your instruments not working, check the plug and pins going into the back of the instrument panel. A lot of the time they come loose or corrode.

Yeah...it's been like that for awhile now. I mean, like I said, it's a stunt bike so these things are expected, but, I want to get it back to at least rideable....

Yeah the Yosh headers definitely "glow", nothing to worry about.

A few of them









I would definently check it out if it never did this before. Pull a spark plug and see how its burning. If its white your bike is running lean. I have one over here with a full yoshi I checked last night and its not glowing. I would rather be safe than sorry.

Yuppers........UNLIKE SOME PEOPLE......I can trust my friends to know they'll take care of my stunted POS when I lend it out to them.....I more than likely wouldnt do that with anyone else besides maybe a handful of people, but ownage is included in there cause he does know what he is doing.

Antmo......LOL.....it's cool. I know you said you were gonna ask patrick but I just had to make this thread to post ....:laughing6 :laughing6 ....JK.....I just wanted some different viewpoints out there...that's all....

BTW...that sucks you couldn't make it out there......:confused1
