If it is set up correctly with proper jetting, it should work.
Do you have baffles in the straight shots?
If not, that could be most of your problems here.
Glider to be honest with you I'm not sure. I'm pretty green. How would I find out?
Take a look in the end of the pipe . You'll see a bolt through the tip of the pipe, look to see if it is holding the baffle in there or the pipe is just open.
There appears to be no baffles in the end of my pipes. What's my next move?
I would contact Vance & Hines and get some baffles for the slip ons. Your bike will run much better also with baffles in it. Without baffles there is no backpressure and all bikes except drag bikes need backpressure to run properly and not have reversion. Do you get any gas spray in the air filter back out the intake?
That could be your problem of fouling the plugs up so quickly.
Also make sure the plugs are the proper heat range for the bike and not a colder version of the stock ones. Your owners manual should tell you there. The stock plug is 6R12 gapped at .040"
One last word here, you may want to remove a pipe and make sure there is no other means of restrictions in them like thunder monsters / torque cones or something similar up the pipe towards the cylinder end. There are a few other mechanical restrictors that get installed in the upper pipe that would not be obvious looking in the pipe from the rear.
