Default can anyone help?

I have an 88 Honda Shadow 1100 I am needing help with. The bike will fire right up on idle, but the pipes get to hot to touch within the first 30 seconds, Then after it warms up, you can rev it al day long with no problems. If you go to ride it, it bogs down, pops, spits and sputters if you hit the gas hard. Ease into it, and it is rideable, but only has a max speed of 65 mph. After a ride last night, I came home and my back exhaust was glowing bright red.

I just got the bike a couple weeks ago, and know nothing about it, other than it has aftermarket exhaust w/o baffles, and a K&N air filter. I dont believe it has been jetted, and I dont know where the fuel air screw is to even check to see if the cap has been popped off or not. If I cant get this bike going soon, I am gonna part it out...

Any and all help is greatly appreciated.. Thanks
