Question Cylinder firing heat

Put a heat thermometer on headers and 2 cylinders are firing at 500 heat range and 2 cylinders are at 200 heat range, what would cause this? Is this a sensor problem? Wiring? What is the things to check, I've done resistance check on many sensors already. I have the manual.
Thx

Sounds like a fuel issue. Two of the cylinders are running leaner/richer than the others. Injector issues? Tuning issues? Not real sure, but that's what it sounds like based on that. Those are pretty drastic differences.

I may not be perfect, but at least I don't ride a Suzuki.

Are you misfiring at all? Have you pulled the plugs to check their condition? That should be the next step I would imagine

... or throttle body synchronisation.


Helibars, MRA screen, Ohlins damper, reversed shift pattern, sorted suspension, braided lines, Michelin Pilot Power, all else stock 'coz it's fast enough!

Throttle body sync, idk how to do that. Coils were ohms checked and spark tested, could it be a crank sensor problem? Or cam sensor?

you need to answer first SkyDorks question...is the bike miss firing at all.

my questions how is the bike running? are you measuring in the same places on the headers up top? I question your meter methods.

did you spray water on all pipes to see if any are cold(not sizzling with water contact)?

What Cylinders are Cold in your opinion?....It may help to troubleshoot the problem you need to answer questions and be as thorough as possible when asking for help especially when we ask questions to help you and you dont answer back.

Also how is the bike running?......what caused you to think of checking header temps first .....I feel there is a story behind this before you went that route and failed to mention it.
