This is normal. These motors produce some very high EGT's. Just be sure all your heat shields are in place and wrap anything near it that might be subject to the high temps that you think could cause a problem.

theres only one problem, i bought the 700 before the 1000 twin came out, i wish i had the twin, much more buildable platform...so my question still remains.

Ok I changed my wording. It's normal. You have half of a V-twin!

What's with all the v-twins running lean, everything on that list is a twin. I guess I'll just wrap my exhaust so i don't see it anymore
