I want to understand deccel popping better.
I'll give you an example: Last week it was around 110 degrees here in OKC and then on the weekend the temperature went down to about 85 degrees. I've been using 91 octane gas, you know to keep the bike running cooler. Well, when I got out that morning to go for a little ride the bike was popping like a pack of dogs. About two miles down the road, getting ready to enter the freeway I was down shifting into 2nd and commented in a turn when the engine popped back with enough force to kill the engine. The back tire stop turnning and I thought I was going down, but pulled in the clutch and regained momentum. Anyway, I went for about a 50 mile ride and when I got back everything was good. I topped off with some 87 octane gas.
Here's my question. I've read a few threads where people claim that certian types of exhaust can stop deccel popping. Is that posible? Isn't the EXUP valve suppose to do that? You know restrict the exhaust more. What are the smarter ways of controlling deccel popping?
