As image above.
I still have same issue with red hot exhaust.
However the dealer Thomas at Drysdale in Perth assures me that he has raised the issue on a recent visit to the factory and was told that it’s not a problem. Apparently the exhaust is very thin and the engine is set up lean to pass Euro emissions. i have asked Thomas to send me an Email confirming that this is the case.
Still waiting but he tells me that it is on it’s way.
As i intend to hang onto the bike; If this causes any damage then I feel confident that they will fix under warranty.
Just ride and enjoy
Hey @georgie, I contacted the local dealer here in Paris area, he confirmed this is a common phenomenom… he said his Hymalaian has similar behavior (he is also a Royal Enfield dealer here). He never checked with Husqvarna. He said as soon as the “engine check” (orange light) is not ligthning up we are safe…
Let’s see if your dealer can get this official letter from the manufacturer…
I found that Phenomenon when searching in the Harley davidson area.
A lot´s of discussions about glowing manifolds, in the end it´s nothing to be concerned of, it´s related to the physics of big 1 cylinder engines (or V2s, which could be seen as a doubled version in this case).
Personally I´m not concerned of it, more I enjoy the nervous look of the Driver in the car next to me, recognizing that glowing Thing below, while waiting at traffic lights for a longer while 😛
