Hi, Anonymous and the usual suspects are:
1. Severely discharged or a damaged battery, should have 12.5 volts or better and be able to pass a load test if necessary.
2. Check battery terminals for damage or corrosion, check the battery cables at "BOTH" ends for loose, corroded, or broken connectors, "INSIDE" and outside the cable harness, perform connector wiggle test and check cables with an ohmmeter if necessary.
3. Faulty main circuit breaker and or connections.
4. Faulty ignition coil and or connections.
5. Faulty spark plug, oil or gas fouled, wrong heat range or service type, wrong gap, loose in the cylinder head, broken electrode or insulator.
6. Faulty spark plug cables, leaking or broken, internal damage.
7. Faulty ignition module, switch, CKP, MAP, CMP, sensor and or any connector in the ignition circuit could have corroded, loose, or broken pins/sockets
8. Burnt exhaust valve or air leak in the exhaust system.

SOURCE: exhaust glows red
sounds like it's running too lean, could be **** in the carb starving it of fuel. remove air cleaner and spray a bunch of carb cleaner in and let it sit overnight, or take carb off and strip it and clean

Purchase a EFI controller. I suggest a Fi2000R. It is easy to hook up and fairly easy to set by the instructions.

SOURCE: Glowing RED exhaust pipe
try a bigger jet or its going to cause some damage. You can pull the choke on to get some more fuel in to cool it .
Check that the cam timing hasnt been played with, some change the exaust cam by a tooth to copy yz specs, on top dead centre, there is a little arrow on each cam that lines up with the rocker cover surface

two things you have to oberved. Choke is only applicable if you experience hard starting in the morning,If yes then use choke for a while till you got your motor idling stage.the glowing red hot indicates that your engine is flaming hot, this means your choke is steadily on.( never stay your choke steadily on.).Try to clean your carb , carb cleaner will do. even without dismantling your carb from the engine manifold.Rev your throttle and spray through the air intake, you'll notice a foul sound bcoz the cleaner is mixing with your gas,it's fine.also you'll notice a black smoke while doing a full rev. it's also fine , thats the carbon that need to push out from your carb. take it from there my friend ...let me know the result.observed your bike

is it a straight thru exhaust, or is it just a head pipe with nothing attached? If it's just a head pipe, you need to get some sort of muffler on it or you'll burn your valves out from a lean condition. The backfire is due to the vaccum fed carbs that yamaha runs. They work wonderfully, but under heavy deceleration, the vaccum still feeds the bowl, and it builds up excess fuel, which eventually burns off as a backfire. If it were fuel injected, you could have the fuel map adjusted to lean it out under deceleration.
