Default any recommended dealers/ service techs?

I have tried to get a clear idea of what is needed to get my victory running right, before i take it on a long trip. Basically i think i need a re-map/ new map/ adjustment to my bike to fix the backfire on decel, choppy throttle, and popping on gear shift.
the 3 dealers in my area all suggest i get a powercommander. the bike is under warranty still, and i have added nothing to the bike since purchase.
would there be no course of action besides adding a pc? All 3 have said that a map from victory probably will not work since they are designed to run victory pipes....
my bike has
-rpw big slash 2 into 1 pipes
-k/n air filter
-vented airbox cover
(i dont see any o2 sensors in the pipes so that may be worth noting)

anyone know a tech or dealer that can assist in these issues??

We had a Customer with this problem too. they had the victory map and it didn't help at all. It needs something like a power commander. you can get a power commander with a map in it already for the RPWs.

A PCV and custom dyno tune should cure what ails ya. I had the ecu flash with my Ness Big Honkers,and performance filter. Had all kinds of popping. When I got the PCV and had it "dialed in" things were much smoother. Had a similar situation on my previous bike. Had to get a PC 3 to stop all the popping and backfiring.

Sure would be nice if you said what you rode, and not just the mods it has.
If it is a 08 or later. You will always have some pops with your set up, and the best you can do is to minimize them

I'm not an asshole...I just type that way

My thought on the matter is that a PC is a great way to mask an existing problem. But there may be two things going on here:

1) You are hearing experiencing normal Victory things and coming off another bike you're not used to it and haven't been informed about "normal" Victory traits, like a small decal pop on certain years and setups. A PC won't help this.

2) You bike has a problem (intake leak for example) and you dealer(s) isn't smart enough to fix the bike and instead wants a blanket band-aid: the PC. The PC won't help this either.

Your setup is very mild, I see no ready for a PC. But we're going to need more info: year, model, history.
