Have you done any mods, how many miles? Most motorcycles run very lean with the stock tune. If you have done anything to increase air flow in or out without adjusting the fueling the exhaust could be a bit hotter. Have you checked the carb / throttle body sync?
I had the left side header pipe blue very early, in the first 500 miles. Dealer replaced it under warranty and said my throttle bodies (EFI not carb) were OUT of sync. Since I have done a few non-recommended mods and ran a bit lean for a while. Chrome on both my header pipes is deteriorating. Plastic bags & such that have stuck to the headers hasn't helped I'm sure. I'm probably to blame.
Not sure what would help but you could try "blue job" or some other quality chrome polish and a good bit of elbow grease.
