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.

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
