If those are factory pipes, you have catalytic converters in them. Most likely you have a cylinder not firing properly and it's loaded up the one side with unburnt fuel and the cat is causing it to combust. I believe the right hand side is the shortest distance from the "Y" pipe. Others have had their bikes burn to the ground with the same issue.
it's a set of the carbon fiber termi's with a full set of pipes ,on my 08 1098s . I don't think there is a cat in them . They have been on there for like 16500 miles of so , and they were never on fire before that I know of . that one was hot enough that it cooked the sticker on that side. So do you think I should put in a new set of plugs ? I was following a slow poke for quite awhile on the way home.
