THE POPPING WAS ALWAYS THEIR , NOW THAT YOU HAVE LOUDER EXHAUST YOU HERE IT. THE RIGHT PC PROGRAM MIGHT GET RID OF IT. SOME Z1000s DO THIS OTHERS DO NOT. MY 04 IS 100% STOCK EXCEPT FOR MY FULL MUZZY. IT NEVER POPPES .?
Don't slam the throttle shut, never slow down? It seems to me that most of the aftermarket exhausts pop on decel once in a while at least.
That is probably why Kawi spends so much time, money and engineering on their exhausts. They are huge, double walled, super thick and super heavy all just to quiet things down. Not to mention having to comply to emission standards. Compaired to aftermarket, short, lightweight, super thin, quasi street legal, baffles removed, etc. It is know wonder why they pop once in a while.
Thats what a dyno run will iron out...it pops because the fuel mix is not quiet right at that point.
I had a few little pops after my dyno run on roll off at 6000-9000 rpm..went back..plugged into pc added a small amount af fuel to that rev range (5 min job)...no more pops .
