Turns the header red hot in 10 min of riding around my neighborhood also, that normal? It's certainly not because it's hot out..
Uh oh, I'm not in a wrenching thread...

It is running way lean. You need a new pilot jet, it is either gummed up or too small for the temperatures right now. Lean is real dangerous, you will seize the engine if you continue. Is it a Keihin or Mukuni? You should never go beyond 2 1/2 turns out and less than 1 turn from closed. If you go more than 2 1/2 out you need to go next size up...if you go less than 1 turn you need to go to the next size down.
