Kawasaki Praire Problem?

maybe someone could help me out with this question i got...i just recently acquired a '99 Kawasaki Prairie 300cc automatic and its got what i think is a problem. where the exhaust comes out the front of the engine and comes down the left side of the quad and gets about half-way back the seat its getting really hot and melting the plastic of the body. it was melted when i got it used, but i am wondering if this was a problem for this model fourwheeler? anyone seen this? what can be done to fix it, short of re-doing the exhaust completelyn and replacing the plastic? is there any aftermarket exhaust companies making a system for this quad that would help performance any? where would i be able to get replacement plastic? thanks for any help...

My neighbor kid's 300 Prairie has the same problem. I think it started when his exhaust came loose. We had to put a better clamp on the muffler. I think his had a piece of heat resistant fiber glued on the backside of the plastic- maybe you could try something like that. He has a lot of fun on that Prairie and he abuses it alot. Ed in Iowa.

You may also consider checking the spark plug to see if your running to lean. That will make it run hot( if the spark plug is burning white its lean)
