Have you ever noticed that if you hang your jacket on the end of the handle bars it only touches the front exhaust pipes if they are real hot, hot enough to melt the jacket liner on to the pipe. if the pipes are cold jacket wont touch them
Loxpump. I would probably pull the spark plugs and check the colour. If the right plug is much lighter than the left one, it makes sense that it is running hotter. Hot normally means it is running lean, but it is also possible that the right one is normal and the left one is running rich. Regardless, I would be checking the carbs to confirm that they are both clean and running OK. Then doing the carb sync.
I changed the plugs not long ago to put in a set of iridiums and they looked the same. Guess I need to a set of vaccum gauges. Also I think when the pipes are hot that they become magnetized to any jacket material and bare skin!!
