Spotlight indexing

I have a question about Spotlight and indexing. I have read in the FAQ how to disable indexing on the external drive. However, I don't think that is my issue. I have used SuperDuper to copy my iMac to an external drive. When I boot from the external drive, it seems to take much longer than expected. Once it does load OSX, everything runs slow as spotlight is "indexing". Indexing takes about 2 hours to complete. I can run other apps while this happens, but it does slow down the sytem. Is there a reason it must re-index after a clone? Would stoping it from indexint the external drive help this situation? Your help is greatly appreciated.
