Hey guys, got a question about my 2008 Dragon 800. On my last ride in the mountains it had a few hickups throughout the day but over all ran decent. On the ride out it was flashing 5 for EGTs. Well I was running it with the hood open and noticed a rip in one of the Exhaust Valve bellows. Do you guys think a malfunctioning valve was causing higher EGTs, thus throughing the code? Or should I be digging further and possibly taking it to the dealer? Trying to have it running by the weekend. Thanks!

Well, repairing the ripped boot would be a good start. Also maybe Google the code or call the dealer.
