On all of my older bike I was told that if the pipes turned blue the air fuel mixture was wrong. On my V-rod with 1600 miles on it the pipes are blue as heck up at the motor is this ok or is there a problem? The bike runs great no hick ups or anything. On a side note I just drilled my stock exhaust best free mod you can do finally it sounds like a mean bike (for now)

I noticed the same thing, still seems to run fine so I'm not going to worry about it.

The next time you are at your local HD Dealer check out the used bikes for sale. You will find most of them have "blue"d pipes. I am assuming you are talking about the header pipes and not the chrome heat shields. Some blueing is normal.
