I was out on my one today for about 2 hours and it was popping on the overrun at times aswell as anytime I used the quickshifter.I rather like the sound.My one is is a 15 reg motorsport with the akrapovic can with baffle removed.

My 2010 K1300S with stock exhaust has a pop when quick shifting especially under aggressive throttle. This is normal due to the drop in ignition by the computer during the shift.

This can also be caused by poor seal between the silencer and the header. A good coat of anti seize can help. I love the quick shift pop going up the gears. I like to time it just after I pass someone who deserves it. :rolleyes:
