Hey guys,
Ever since my first service (now done nearly 2000 miles) the bike seems to be running hot!
The temp gauge never goes above the half way mark and the cooling fan cuts in when it should but the exhaust seems to get very hot.
Last night I really thrashed it on the way home and the ping pinging of a very hot bike seemed excessive and took ages to stop. Had to wait over half hour before I felt I could hose it off.
Any comments?

The exhaust system cools down in about 15 mins on my bike but the actual engine takes about 3 hours to properly cool down, although I think it's the oil that is hot not the coolant. I've had my headers glow red a few times so I think it's 'normal' for this bike.
