Default Feels like Brand new bike!

a few days ago I wanted to tinker with the bike. It pops a LOT a LOT on decel and pops gently at idle, so i pulled the plugs, they look like the bike has been running kind of rich, which makes sense because I pulled the O2s. I had the timing up to +6 as well. I replaced the plugs, set the timing back to +3 and removed the rubber on the air filter, and holy crap, I am glad i had my backrest on because it really surprised the heck out of me! she still pops on decel but not AS bad and she still pops at idle. Time for PCV?

Also, does anybody know why the 2012 XR sounds different than the 2013? My buddy has the 2013 and his has a lovely high pitch wine, and mine just sounds like a sewing machine. I rode with another friend who also has a 13 Highball and his sounds like my friend's 2013 XR.

All Vic's pop right from the factory you can't hear it cause of stock mufflers.
Stock mufflers are very quiet. You don't like sound pull end cap and drill some holes in the end of mufflers. To loud weld a hole shut.
Just about all Vic;s have black looking plugs that does not mean your rich. Go by miles per gallon and use phone to find that out.
