Extreme Hot exhaust suspect one cyl dead
2007, 650, 60,000 mi
rode for 2 minutes no prob, got to a stop light and idled norm. I left the stop light and eng lost power, barely able to accelerate as if running on one cylinder, had about a mile to go to get home so nursed it for a mile. Started to smell smoke in driveway. The exhaust was so hot it melted the plastic shield around it. Im suspecting either the cylinder wasnt firing and raw fuel was porting thru the exhaust and burning or maybe the exhaust valve stuck open....any thoughts??
