Just a thought, but I don't have backfiring and popping because I have the STOCK exhaust. I'm curious if anyone with a OEM pipe has the problems you guys have described.
I know the engines are completely different, but when I switched to an aftermarket exhaust on my GS adventure, I had the same problem you guys are experiencing, the popping/backfiring. Same thing happened when I went to different pipes on my Harley.
Since this happened to me with other bikes, I chose to keep the stock exhaust on my KS.
Keep a high visual horizon,
