Ok , last summer I noticed that the bike started to pop quite a bit when lifting off the throttle , I didnt think too much of it until yesterday. You see , I installed Roadhouse Slip-ons , well , now the popping is a real problem as it is VERY pronounced , it pops like crazy when I come of the throttle and when shifting.

I googled it a little and it appears that it can be caused by running too rich , running too lean , too much air or not enough air :confused:

The first thing I am going to do is check the plugs , as I have mainly done short trip riding and they may be a little fouled , I may also try the marbeling trick. The air filter was new last fall.

Any other ideas ? it is my understanding that I shouldnt have to add a power commander since the computer on the V2K can handle a wide range of conditions.

Any advice is greatly appreciated.

The exhaust change might have leaned it out slightly. I'd try the marble trick first. For bikes with carbs I've found that setting the mixture a little richer or raising the idle slightly also helps with eliminating it but not really sure what you can do with respect to these adjustments with your fuel injection.

Thanks for the feedback ...

i can try the marble trick very easily , compared to the plugs , but , i think i need to look at those plugs too , if i can figure out how to get the rear one out...
