I am already turning heads. My question is about the pipes getting hot. Mine appears to have a type of guard but I can still feel the heat through my jeans. Any ideas? I want to be able to take my daughter for short rides but am afraid she might get her leg burned. I know I will have tons of other questions soon. ThanksI have the heat shield on my bike, and it has made a world of difference. Is yours installed in the right place? When I first put mine on, I could still feel heat, then I moved it forward on the pipe, and it works great now.,,,

What is the spark plug gap why is 1 of my exhust pipe hot and the other is not


Dave:
Your #1 cylinder ( the front cylinder) is not firing. It could be that the spark plug is fouled or improperly gapped, or the carburetor is not delivering gas to the cylinder. pull both spark plugs Clean the plugs and gap them. The gap should be about 0.035 In. (thirty five thousandths). Reconnect the wires to the spark plugs. Lay the spark plugs against the outside of the cylinders with the metal part of the spark plug body touching the cylinder (creating the ground part of the circuit). push the starter and look for spark at both spark plugs. If you have spark at both plugs, put them back in and start the bike and check the exhaust pipes to see if they are both hot. If one is still cold, the carburetor for that cylinder is not delivering gas. Could be a kinked or clogged fuel line, disconnect the fuel line from that carburetor and see if gasoline flows out. If gas flows out, the carburetor needs to be tuned or removed and cleaned.

Why is my motorcycle running so hot


Generally, pipes turning blue from too much heat will be caused by improper fuel/air mixture or timing. If the bike exhibited no problems before changing the pipes, my guess would be that you need to readjust your carburetor. This would not be an uncommon step necessary when changing pipes. Might as well check your timing at the same time though.

My ironhead sportster's tail pipes are heating up so much that they started to glow after only about 2 minutes of the bike running.so i hurried and shut it down right away but don't know where to...


Hey beast, what part of the pipe is glowing? You running straight pipes, if so how long are they? A rich fuel mixture wil cause the pipe on the rear cylinder to get hot like that, most often on hard acceleration, or high speed riding....Also carbon build-up on the inside of the pipes and creates an inferno.

On my pipes one side is hot and the other is cold


Check the pipe right where they come out of the heads. It depends on what type of exhaust system you have on your Road King. If the stock exhaust is on the bike, the rear cylinder exhaust is directed to both mufflers. With the exhaust from the front and part of the exhaust from the rear cylinders going to the right side muffler, it gets more exhaust than the left side and runs hotter. Like I said, check the temp of the exhaust pipes at the cylinder heads. If one of them is cold, that cylinder is not firing. As long as both of the pipes are hot there, you're fine. Just ride the bike and have fun.

Ride Safe.

How long should timer/pump be on before the desired time for hot water?


Any hot water circulator which is not Tankless compatible pumps water at less than 0.5 gpm. More information would be needed to guesstimate an answer. Length of pipe run? Pipes in foundation of home? Pipes insulated? This system only delivers 95f water which might not be high enough if your pipe run is too long. Having multiple bypass valves in the home will make it take even longer.

Exhaust pipes discolored


It may indicate that but that doesn't mean there's anything wrong with it. If the bike sat for a long time while running, the exhaust can get hot enough to discolor the pipes...but that doesn't mean there's anything wrong with the motor. Improper carburetor settings can make the bike run lean (not enough fuel) which, in turn, can cause a hotter than normal exhaust and discolor the pipes...again, this does not indicate there is anything wrong with the motor. Ask if the pipes are stock or after-market. After-market pipes are a minefield for motorcycle riders. When the manufacturer puts the stock pipes on, they are tuned to the motor to give peak performance which usually results in little to no bluing of the pipes. Aftermarkets can throw the tune off and discoloration is the result. Ask the seller if there have been any changes to the bike...such as after-market pipes, rejetting the carburetor, changing the intake, etc. Most likely the seller will say yes, there have been some changes made. Please note: THIS DOES NOT MEAN THE BIKE IS BAD OR THE ENGINE IS WRONG.

Hot Pipes


I have the heat shield on my bike, and it has made a world of difference. Is yours installed in the right place? When I first put mine on, I could still feel heat, then I moved it forward on the pipe, and it works great now.
