"Popping" on decel or hold throttle...

On a recent trip I noticed that I am getting a little popping on decel from higher revs, or when the throttle is held at higher revs as I made corners, Not noticeable at lower revs, and not severe but thought I'd ask - normal or no? Bike runs fine, revs right out in gear no problems. Spark plug cables and plugs all checked and good.

Thanks!

I small leak in the exhaust somewhere might cause that. Look for a smoky spot on the exhaust pipe.

Due to heart health, the Dr says not to ride under 40 degree air temp. Ugh! Now it is harder to get my 18000 miles a year in just in the summer. Guess that stopped my 20 degree rides now.

Most likely the header bolts, they "loosen up" with mileage,
if it's not that,
possibly a crack where the four into one is welded
