You have the stock muffler on correct? One thing triggers some thoughts that during the break in, the motor is most likely running pig rich and if riding hard, unburned fuel may be igniting in the pipe and muffler causing hotter than normal temps in the muffler and melting surrounding plastics! Again this is just a thought to consider.

Either way, I sure hope Cat steps up to the plate and fixes the issues and melted parts.

This is interesting since some people believed that AC went away from the slot injection 800 because of the flaming issues. Seems that the problem still exists.

I heard talk that cat is sending out 2020 ECUs with no to very little testing on them. This issue might not be done. I was hoping it was not true, but maybe it is.

could swear someone here recently commented that the idle hangs for a bit during break in to burn off excess fuel on the 2020's after running them hard, then winds down.

regardless, it's really unacceptable bullshit for someone buying a new machine. no one should still be experiencing this flaming problem after having THREE YEARS to correct it.

That hanging idle was introduced in the March recall flash for the 18-19's and its not just during break in

My '16 6000 hung the idle the whole time I had ( put 4000 miles) it , worse when clutched. Never any issues with the exhaust or anything, had a 4 year warranty that I didnt use.

Mine was done before I bought it. I haven't had any issues with it yet in 10 hours. I'm guessing it's when running certain loads at certain rpms for certain duration. I'm putting a can on it as soon as fed ex gets off their ass so I hope I'll be in the clear then. I know these still smoke a good amount I kind of wonder if it's excess oil trapped in the can plus a bunch of heat.

Wasn't that an 800-only issue? I didn't think the 600's were ever affected, but maybe it was both.
