HDX exhaust gets red hot

I bought a 2014 Prowler 700 HDX and when I take off and start riding it, it starts to smell hot and when I lift the box up and look at the exhaust, it is beat red and hot. You can feel the heat coming through the holes for the seat belts. I do have a soft cab on it. I didn't know if the soft cab is affecting it or not. I did take the rocker panel off on the driver side and had a piece made with some air vents to pull some air into the engine area but that didn't seem to help. Anyone else have any other ideas why it runs hot. I don't even have 70 miles on the thing yet. Thanks.
