Default Plugs equal - Pipes not

I changed baffles recently and noticed one was clean and the other black and sooty - checked the plugs and they look the same - good brown even color, any thoughts?

It happens on in line V-Twins. The rear cylinder tends to run richer but with separately controlled EFI throttle body bikes like Victory; I wouldn't think it would be as prevalent as on a single throttle body system like HD.

Looking at the color of a baffle is a bad test, and it means nothing.

I'm not an asshole...I just type that way

Thanks - just seemed odd that one was black and sooty.
