Hello All-

I am new here. Bought an XTZ in December, added Tatou 4s tracks. Love the power of this machine.

My concern is that the entire pipe and muffler will glow red. I ride pretty fast, mostly roads.

Had a conversation with my shop guy and he is suggesting a controller to richen it up a little. My thought was to ceramic coat the pipe.

Any ideas? I think I have mixed feelings about all the computers I have read about on here.

Thanks-

This is normal. These machines create very high exhaust gas temperatures (EGT's) that cause the material your header to glow bright red. It's kind of cool to see it on my XTZ when the turbo and the header are glowing. This is why Arctic Cat designed a few exhaust heat shields in certain spots on your header and in the rear by the muffler.

I run the PCV and auto tune, also double wrap your pipes with header wrap.
