You are definitley running lean. IMHO. Fuel helps regulate the temp of the bike, and just openeing the exhaust or just openeing the intake (some) won't usually hurt the fuel mixture too much. However, doing a Full Debaffle as well as opening up the intake as much as you have will allow so much air through (great for power) that the fuel is not able to cool down the jugs each time it is sprayed into them since there is so much air being run through. Your optins are to close up some of the in and out of the airflow, or buy a Fuel processor to add more fuel.
My previous bike was an air/ oil cooled 1400. I added drag pipes, and wide open K&N pod air filters for maximum air flow. I tried it for a short day, and it could NOT handle the extra air flow without getting hot. That bike was still running dual (albeit seperate) carbs, and once I re-jetted (increasing the size of the needles that allow fuel into the carburators which in turn adds more fuel to the jugs for combustion)-- The Beast was awakened, and I had Zero heat issues from there on out.
