new exhaust/overheat?

I just installed jardines high mounts today. T onight went out for first ride. bike ran hot, kept climbing to 220 degrees. Didn't have this problem before exhaust on. No, I haven't checked coolant level or anything else yet as it is late at night. Just wondering if anyone had same experience. Also, a lot of heat radiated from exhaust system, so much that visor fogged up.

did you rejet the carb. it may be running lean. I too noticed a lot of exhaust heat when i switched from carbon yoshi's to the high mount jardines. i can live with it though, it still isn't as bad as the heat from the frame of my brothers Tiller.

Yup. More air with the same amount of fuel means it's running leaner. And leaner means hotter.

Thanks guys, this forum is very helpful. Looks like I probably need jet kit. The Jardines do sounds good, similar to ducati 999 with ducati pipes.

Yep. I'd say it's lean. Look at your spark plugs. If they look white on the tip, you know you're lean. More fuel should cool it out a bit.

If he did them in successively larger, then smaller fonts it'd be like an echo.

Just got bike back from race shop, jetted with dynojet kit, tuned on a dyno. Still runs hot, just not as hot. climbs up to 215 real quick at a long light. If I ran to multiple lights had to pull over turn off. This is frustrating, runs great, sounds great, peaked on dyno at 110 hp and 69 lb. torque. I think this bike won't run with these pipes but bike is tuned with these, so I am in a jamb.

Man, it is pretty hot this summer. I don't think 215 is that big of a deal. So long as you have water wetter or anti-freeze. I think water boils at like 220. So don't use only water. But my stock SH gets that hot and hotter. And it is under warranty and only has 1400 miles on it.

I say ride it and enjoy.

When it's really hot outside (80 +), my stock superhawk hits 220 degrees all the time, but as soon as the fans turn on then the engine temperature will drop and it will never allow the bike to go over 220 degrees. Mine's an 03 with about 3000 miles on it.

Just go out ride and enjoy the bike!!

You can buy the bigger jets for $9 each at a Honda motorcycle dealership instead of paying $100+ for the K&N/DynoJet one (which includes a few different jet sizes you don't need, an extra needle and sometimes a spring and a decal or two in a tacklebox).
Installation should run $180-$200 by the dealership.

Sounds like your bikes run about the same. o/manual states at 251 degrees a red line comes on stating it is overheating. I guess I am comparing to pre-pipes where it ran typically 185-195.

BirdofParadise is an unknown quantity at this point
What temp is your fan kicking in?
Is it coming on?
You could install a manual switch in the circuit to turn on the fan on when you feel the bike is running too hot...like in stop and creep traffic.
This will allow your fan to run longer and help keep the bike cooler.
Just don't forget to turn off the switch.

Tourists sure drive slow!

My bike is stock and it can run 220 sometimes. the fan kicks on at 220
and kicks off about 210/211. I moved the needles up another .020 so I know
there is enough fuel. It's a 2005 and runs perfect. I will probably will run some
Redline water-wetter but I am not really concerned if it does not go over
220. I do think the 10/40 oil might get a bit thin at higher temps.
So for the summer I am just running 20/50, more for the tranny then anything else.
