Default Decel popping

Hi guys was wondering what others have done to get rid of decel popping. I have Lloyd's timing wheel set at +6 and O2 sensors disconnected. I am considering getting Lloyd's VFC-III. any other suggestions...
And yes I looked in the manual

If you have an aftermarket exhaust then you will probably always have some form of decel popping. You can do a search on here because there are tons of threads covering the subject. I would think with the timing wheel set at +6 then you wouldn't have much popping problems but every bike is different. Your other option is to put the stock exhaust back on. Don't sound as cool but little to no popping. I rode the Blue Ridge on Friday up to Roanoke and took I-81 back home, great day for it.

Well the funny thing is that when I first put the wheel to +6 it seem to go away for a while. I will check the wheel again. Lloyd's Vic is surprised to help that. I am not sure.
I have stage 1 pipes on. The dealer put them on so I don't have the originals.

We rode to Charlottesville yesterday and took the BRPW back. It was a great ride. Only thing is that I am starting to get neck and upper back pain after riding for about 3 hours. Not sure why. I am going to change my riding position to liitle more forward. See how that works

Maybe you can try raising your handlebars a bit. They were a bit low for me, so I raised them. No need to remove the fairing, the two rear handlebar riser bolts are upside down making adjustment from underneath possible.

Try plugging your O2 sensors back in. This may reduce the decal popping.

Your timing may be a little far advanced for a stock (or stage 1) tune.

Back it off a bit and see. It may also be advanced too far for your bike. Mine vibrated like an out of balance washing machine at +4. After asking around some Vic boards, I was directed to back it off a bit. Set to +2 and all was well and seemed to have all the advantages of the timing wheel.

Lots say a Vic is going to snap, crackle, and pop. If mine did, it would be fixed or gone. I have a Doebeck Gen +4 tuner. Said I'd never do that but the spark plugs told a story I didn't care for much. All seems well with the tuner and the tune now. Oh and no popping, coughing, or gagging. Burns me up to have to put a tuner on to make a stock bike work right though.

Congrats, and enjoy the ride. Hope things work out well for you. They should.

Did you dial the D Gen in just as the video shows? Easy tune and install?

No. I used the numbers from a guy on another forum. They seem to be a good enough starting point. I also set one of the double color to a slightly higher setting as per the consensus of others.
Anyway, I'll be happy to email them to you if I can actually remember them. Will have to check the unit to see what I ended up with. It is simple to tune, watch the video on the AFR+4 site. Yea really, that simple. Even a lost Texan can do it. LOL
As for install, go to buywitchdoctors dot com and watch the video for the AFR III. It is basically the same install short the gauge (I didn't care for the looks of the gauge. Very nice, but doesn't "belong" IMHO. It is tucked under a side panel and out of the way, I can pull it out to do settings and check how things are running but don't see any real need to).
Watch and LISTEN closely. They tell how to pull the tank without chancing the breaking of the famous fuel nipple and how to pop off the injector clips. He says they can be a PITA and means it. That is the only trying part of it I encountered. The rest is take your time, route things wisely. Check wires so they don't get pinched and the sort.
Set it, check it is you want, and ride. There are nuances to the controller but it seems pretty dummy proof. I am far from a master mechanic, but am handy.

Cheers

Thanks for the info Tex!
I'm currently reading about and comparing info on fms's. I know most love the PC V but I just as soon have a system I can tweak with each performance change I may make to the bike.

what model bike do you have

check your exhaust flange bolts bet there loose. Get them tight and go for ride when you come home put some gloves on and re tighten them.
You might have to do this more then once.
I have read where guys have found no exhaust gasket in head port
