Talking Pop sound at carb

Hello all,
Okay my problem is on my 05 xvs 1100 I'm getting a popping sound that you can actually feel if you put you finger on the float bowl, it mostly does it when blipping the throttle after warming it up with the choke off. The bike has stage one dyno jet kit with stock air cleaner except I put in a k&N filter, I've also installed v&h classic slip ons.
I don't know if it maybe the pilot jets or something else.
The AIS has been deleted I've had the bike set up like it is now for a few months and this pop is relatively new. Over all the bike runs great and has plenty of power.
Also I am going to be installing a chubby air kit soon.
If any ideas plz let me know the bike has 5500 miles on it and its the rear carb only not the front carb.

After warming the bike up, try giving the fuel screws 1/4 turn OUT at a time while blipping the throttle. If it gets worse, or it seems boggy & slow to rev, go back to where you started, then go 1/4 turn IN at a time & see what that does. Just keep track of how many turns you made & in which direction.
