Not sure when mine was stock the head pipes would glow in the dark after market pipes and rejetting went away. I wouldn,t want to touch them but if I get a chance this weekend I will give you the exact Temps.

Near the head in the first bend in your pipes it'll be hotter.Paint related question? There's always 650C (1202F) resistant paint.When an exhaust starts to glow dark cherry red (the infamous stationary "warming up") you have some 600C (1112F) at hand.The paint on my Legend's exhaust pipes stayed on and kept it's colour.

I painted a pair of mufflers with 500 deg. engine paint and it worked great.

Not hot enough to cause any problem with using regular ol' silicone bathtub caulk on the headers at the head junction.

"Welcome to This Old Motorcycle. Today, we've brought in Handyman Bob to show you how to seal up those pesky header leaks with ordinary bathroom caulk. After that, we'll see if we can't find a use for that old can of barbecue paint. Don't touch that dial, we'll be right back."

You got that right. I`ll take Norm Abram over Tim "the tool man" Taylor working on my bike every time.

4" from the exhaust valve face the exhaust gas temperature is about 1,400*F. As to how hot the pipes themselves get, I'm going to guess maybe 600-650*F depending on the cooling airflow, sunspots, Paris Hilton's BAC, etc.

after I used HD "high temp" engine paint and watched it turn white on the headers( it would be cool if i had a BLK/ wht tank) I beamed it with a infra-red thermometer- after an 45 min of comute and sitting at an idle I was getting 560+ at the curve of the header. it droped off pretty steady and fast as i prgressed down the pipe.
if its not posted by tue/wed ill post the results through out the range of the pipe.

A month or so?? I still have a nice scar where I branded my elbow a year ago on my Bonne's headpipe. I think the scar is kinda sorta permanent......
