I have LTE dual exhausts on my twin peaks, and I am curious why the rear cylinder exhaust feels noticably warmer than the front cylinder exhaust when I put my hand over the end of the muffler. In fact, the front cylinder exhaust feels cold??? It seems to be running good despite this oddity.

I have 2 theories:

1) The front exhaust gets cooled off as it travels down the LONGER header pipes to reach the muffler, or

2) The front carb is running richer (which cools the motor more) than the rear carb?


WHAT DO YOU GUYS THINK???

The rear pipe has alot less length to it.

i also think that part of it could be from the limitied airflow that the rear exhaust gets.
