No it will not. You probably don't NEED to rejet at all. If the manufacturer suggests it for your bike and pipe combination I would follow their advice. If they do not suggest it I would use a dyno to get the best performance from your new setup. Keep in mine your new exhaust only lowers the back pressure. You haven't changed the intake parameters at all as far as airflow. So any additional air going into the cylinders due to your new exhaust will only be because of the reduced volume in the cylinder while the intake valve is open. This is a rather small amount, so don't get all crazy and jump several jet sizes at once.

First, determine which cylinder is bad. Touch the exhaust pipes to determine which is hotter.(the pipes get VERY hot so be quick or use a non-contact thermometer.)
Remove and look at the bad cylinder's plug, if ti's wet you are getting fuel, try replacing it. (Heck, replace it anyway.)
If there is no fuel on the plug the carburetor might be plugged or need cleaning.

You can get a wiring diagram(complete workshop manual!!) for your XS from the Biker.net website. There is a excellent overview/troubleshooting guide of the troublesome charging system here to help you resolve the problem, as well as options to upgrade parts. Happy to give you advice on the electrics of this bike. I have had plenty of experience maintaining my own:)
