Very possibly running to lean. And that is dangerous. Can melt down a good motor. The "for sure" way to find out would be an Air / Fuel gauge. The other way is a little trial on error (running a bigger main jet in Your carb).

Before we get crazy tho, tell us about Your machine....aftermarket CDI ? Sheave kit? any mods to the carb or intake? After market exhaust?

good point ok motor has been rebuilt .5mm over, msd cdi, stock carb and alba exhaust but about 2 years ago I was riding in north florida with stock exhaust and noticed the same deal I figured it was just from altitude change as I reside and ride mainly in far west tx sadly I never paid attention to it much until the other night back to motor lol its basically stock no major mods although would like a jbs sheave in near future

I'm thinking You will want to rejet the carb. 

Lets see what others think about this. Lots of very good 'motor heads' on here that know it better than I do.

whats the plug look like , the af gage is best but the plug color will tell you a lot also if you where hammering it right before you saw it glowing could be it the pipes get hot an at night after a hard run you can see it some times

haven't had a chance to dig into it yet to look but can tell ya this its not from hard riding when we go out its just easy goin and most times my 10 year old drives. and good point on the plug hadn't thought about scoping it out guess if its white time to get a gauge on it and see about jettin it
