re

have you blocked off the epa junk-its pumping air into your exhaust making it pop
on decel.- you should'nt really need a map with just pipes-

change the intake and you WILL need a new map-is there a dyno in your area?

re

your fuel injected right? if so:

on the right side air cover,remove cover and at about 1 o'clock you see a black hose running off the top of the backing plate-remove this hose from the grommet-get a big marble and
push it up in the hose-don't plug the grommet with the marble to avoid it coming out and falling into the t/b,plug the hose,put it back on the grommet and re-install cover

your done-there are other hoses you could plug but not really nessesary

to completly remove the epa stuff you'll need some coasters to block off the
reed valves

keep in mind if this does not slove the popping problem,you may have a air leak somewhere
in the exhaust - make sure the crush gaskets at the headpipe flange are good and not
deformed and check the whole length of pipe for leaks-any air getting in will make it pop

then keep in mind that sometimes long straight pipes will pop a little no matter what you do :wink:

if its carbed you got some other lines to plug


ride safe!
