Factory Paint Issue?

I have a 2009 Road Glide and have had a Python Rayzer on the bike for about 7 months. The exhaust puts out some exhaust soot on the right rear saddlebag (as I have read many guys have the issue) and it always wiped right off with a microfiber towel. I recently dropped the bike and got my bike back from the Dealership with a new saddlebag from the factory. Yesterday after the second short ride I took on it since getting the new bag installed, the exhaust pipe has torched and is cracking the paint. The only thing I can think is the chemicals/products that were used in the paint back in '09 when the bike was painted were better than the stuff being used nowdays at the factory. I'm not sure if I should contact Python or H.D. about the issue, any insight to this problem would be appreciated, thanks.
