    Weak mixture or ignition timing, I reckon, Have you examined the color of the plugs? I also reckon you need to examine carb set-up.

    Granted straight pipes would necessitate rejetting the carb but I don't think jetting would be so far off to cause overheating so I'd first verify that your ignition timing is spot on.
