Hot exhaust

I was checking the engine compartment on my teryx last night and the motor was running and temperature was around 175 deg. I looked into the engine compartment under the drivers side, I noticed the rear cylinder exhaust pipe was red hot. Is this normal? I'm working on upgrading the exhaust but until I do this kind of caused concern because seems like it can catch something on fire. Has anyone seen this cause I'm really changing out the exhaust now?

That is interesting... Is it because the meteal is so thin and is there a chance of it warping?

Not smart enough to explain it, LOL Just know it is normal for stainless.

On the dyno, the whole exhaust will be cherry red even the front side of mufflers.

My Muzzy actually melted a lot of the plastic on the rear of the drivers side. I'm going to wrap the exhaust before I put the motor back in. FYI ... go ahead and spend the $12 on the stator cover while you are doing your exhaust. The stock one WILL melt off.

No need for the metal cover anymore, the exhaust has been rerouted

I've always been a fan of exhaust wrap (the good stuff, not el cheapo)I'm sure there are detractors as well. It's a nice option to keep temps down under the vehicle, as well as the benefits of reducing the chance of damage to surrounding components. I think the only drawback would be if you dive your machine into wet areas a lot. Out here in the desert ... it's great.
