    I noticed today that one exhaust pipe was noticably cooler than the other. Is this normal or something I should be concerned about?

    my front runs hotter, and colored more, doesn't run much hotter than the back one after re-jet so if you changed out the pipes and didn't re jet might be running lean, which made my front run supper hot.

    It is an inherent design issue on a carbed Harley, the front cyclinder will run a little leaner which makes it ron hotter.
