Have you cleaned the airfilter?

I had the same problem with my 1100 (hardkrome/KN/hypercharger) a couple years ago then used KN's two part filter cleaning sprays. The popping stopped for me. Now when I get excess backfire, I know my filter needs cleaned.
no i have'nt, just put it in last spring, have a little over 3000 miles since i put it in. i'll take a look at it. thank you.
Here is a link describing the best method for cleaning the filter - good luck!
