This means your carb is set to rich fuel to air mixture is wrong. If this is single cylinder this is easy fix but twin or above and gets complicated. If single cylinder you would simply adjust the air mixture screw on carb. but I am thinking this is fuel injected... so being said that there is still a fuel to air mixture and it is wrong on the side where the bluing is takin place and needs adjusted or you will end up wearing more on that side of your motor.

The radiator has a filling cap on the right side. Take off the right hand side cowl to have access to it.First fill the system through the radiator, with the bike on the side stand, all the way up, close the cap, run the engine for 10 minutes, then turn it off and let it cool down. Open the radiator's cap again and poor some additional fluid if needed.Then, beneath the radiator, is the expansion tank that you fill up to the max indication with the bike straight (not in side stand) on a leveled surface.
do you mean the exhaust or the throttle restriction
the seller (dealer should already have de restricted the throttle side for you on sale but the exhaust you need to buy an after market system FMF power bomb Header with FMF silencer are awesome for that bike works well
If the starter motor is turning but the engine won't start, the first thing I'd check is to make sure you have your fuel petcock in the ON position. It is a rotary switch, usually built into a cylinder housing on the left-hand side of your bike. If you follow the fuel line you'll run right into it.
dude your engine should have about five or six main bolts holding it in place unless you know what your upto would take it to a dealer without driving it to far but as an extreme temporary solution put a jack under the engine and slowly lift it up place the jack under the weaker side ie side the engine dropped also if ya get the engine up to put the bolt back in run the engine for a bit to make sure nothing else has been affected by the drop and smell for exhaust fumes coming from header pipes best of luck mate but do take to a dealer for a check if it is second hand
The drain plug is under the left hand foot peg. The filter is located behind the exhaust headers. Remove them and you will see the filter housing at the base of the engine. Refill on the right hand side and your sight glass is under the filler/dipstick (both use the same hole). Remember to only check the oil level when the bike is upright (not standing on its stand)
Motorcycles come standard with double wall pipes. The inner pipe turns blue and the outer chrome pipe stays nice. In a stock exhaust system you rarely get blued pipes. Unless, you put on your choke, start your bike, answer the phone, and forget your bike is running (or you start driving and just forget to turn off your choke.). Then you will blue your double wall pipe. Bluing is generally caused by too rich of a mixture or fuel burning in the exhaust pipe. If you put on an aftermarket pipe(usually single wall construction) and did not coat the inside of the muffler pipe, the pipe will generally blue the first time you drive the cycle. An old dealer trick is to replace blued aftermarket pipes with new aftermarket pipes (makes the bike look great on the showroom floor). Again if they don't coat the inside of the pipe with exhaust paint or a special coatings usually about $35 the pipes will blue before the customer gets home. If the bluing is mild you could try a product called" Blue Away"that might help, but should not be used regularly as it takes off a little bit of the chrome each time.
The filter is located under the Yamaha plate on the right side of the engine. You have to remove the front cylinder exhaust pipe to get to it. The filter cover is behind the exhaust pipe. If you have boards instead of pegs on your bike you have to also take loose the right board and brake pedal assembly. You may be able to get to the filter cover by just loosening the exhaust header and the muffler brackets so that the pipe can be moved aside so you can get an allen wrench into the bolts holding the cover on. There are five allen head bolts. Once this cover is removed, you will have access to the filter plate holding everything in. Pay attention to how the filter comes out. The filter will fit back in either way, but it does make a difference for it to seal properly. Check the O-ring on the cover. Again, be careful to put the filter back in the same way it came out.
Sounds like carburator is gummed up, most people when they clean a carb they blow it out but fail to soak it in carb cleaner and even then I have found if you don't use some type of wire or torch tip cleaners jets and passages are still plugged up... I have personally seen this many time and it come back to carburation.
Bluing does mean lean, but you have to take into effect that HD 's right out of the crate are running at 16.5 : 1 air fuel ratio, which is way lean ( they do it for emissions ) You could richen up the power commander a little, You could take it to a dealer that is an authorized Power Commander Tuning Link Center. They can create a map from scratch for your bike, specifically to the way your particular motor combo breathes. But you have to understand that by richening up the mix, to stop the lean condition, you're going to sacrifice fuel economy, because you will be using gas to cool the motor.
On the right side of the bike (right side when ou are sitting on it) just above the rear brake lever behind a small circular plate. remove the plate and the oil filter is inside (you will easily see it). Warning---on these bikes you have to drop the front exhaust header and right floor board in order to change the oil filter unless you install a after market oil filter relocation kit. If you plan on changing your own oil it is highly recommended to install this relocation kit.
