I've see one Gen 2 melted even Worse than that, from being left running on Full Cold Start Enrichener for WAY TOO LONG in that owners driveway in the winter time. Not even a breeze stirring.
The owner thought it would be a 'good idea' to run it awhile to stir the engine oil & charge the battery! Big OOPS!

The exhaust AIS on Gen 2's & Gen 3's creates a LOT of heat! Best to keep the bikes moving.

I am curious PD - my understanding is that lean mixtures create excessive heat not rich...so how come the bike did all that melting with the choke on?
