Roadliner exhaust popping and stalling

I bought my '07 Roadliner this past January and am really loving it.

One thing's been buggin' me. When deccelerating the exhaust pops quite a bit. And sometimes when I rev the engine at a stop, the engine has had hiccups which on a couple of occasions resulted in a stall. Has anyone else experienced this, or should I have a tech look at it? I thought the exhaust valve was suppose to smooth these things out. I would appreciate some input.

Are you using 91 octane fuel? These bikes have 9.5:1 compression so they like the higher octane
