Default Sparks coming from exhaust?

A fellow rider told me he saw sparks coming out of my pipes (Vic swept) after some night riding. This makes me nervous.

Does anyone know what the F is going on?

It might be running ritch,and unburned fuel is igniting from the heat of the exhaust,but I would think flames,not sparks.

Should I replace the baffles or take any other corrective action?

I'm not sure what kind of baffle is used.I've had pipes with fiberglass packing,and it seems to just burn off.(and the bike gets a little louder)

How often did sparks come out? Were you in a cure and scraping the pegs?

Trade bikes with your friend and see if it shots sparks.

Or is your x friend pulling your leg cause you ride a better bike.
