This is normal. On many bikes the headers will glow....it's just most of the time you aren't looking at them [8D]

I've never noticed mine glowing, but of course I've never looked after a long ride..

I'd have to agree with hoser. You removed the cat which I'm sure is allowing the exhaust to flow better, but at the same time leaned out your fuel mixture. You'll need to rejet. Running lean is bad for engines be in a car or a bike. Running lean is a good way to burn up pistons and valves. I'd get the air fuel mixture checked or put the cat back on and see if the problem goes away.

your bike also jumps 20 degrees due to know air flow to your radiator or engine causing the coolant to heat up.
