Bikes run very lean in the first place for emissions reasons. Put on open pipes and the mixture can go dangerously lean, burn holes in pistons even. You might check to see if Dynojet has a jet kit for the bike. Until then put the stockers back on.

Yes and yes.
That is only one problem, a lack of baffles.
Two possible solutions; take your pick.

Baffling, eh? So, what's the problem?

(the problem is, un-muffled straight-pipes are for ass-holes)
