Headers turning.....

Less than 300 miles and headers turning gold. Anyone else experiencing this? I am familiar with the to rich/to lean coloring but was thinking with EFI maybe this wouldn't happen. Maybe it's just due to the heat?

My headers are so full of dead flies and gooey remains, it is hard to see ANY color
I think that they may have changed slightly, but i will compare them with a showroom bike on Friday when i go for the first service.

270 miles on mine. Just popped outside to look see if they've changed colour, and realised that I had black ones fitted!!!
But I can report that they are still black!

Post picks. Would like to see what it looks like with the black exhaust. I had considered doing that. i actually ordered the black engine cases, but when I saw the bike I opted to not have them installed. I may at the break in service...not sure...

Well, if you have the Green & Silver one like I do at least the gold pipes match the pinstriping on the tank ... small win.

By the look of the pipes, I figured they were double walled like my BMW and wouldn't do that. Oh, well, it adds the vintage look they were trying for!
