Default A little pop from the exhaust when shifting

As some of you may know, I did the Lloydz AF, VFC and timing wheel (+4) recently. I am really happy overall with the results. Fiddles with the VFC settings and it runs atrong as F*ck. But.....Sometimes, especially when hot, I get a little pop from the exhaust when upshifting. I cannot for the life of me get it to go away. It did it from time to time before mods, but it is a little more frequent and a bit louder now. Any thoughts? BTW...stock exhaust...not stage 1

You need to richen it up a bit at the pop spot ... You can pinpoint it on a PCV but I don't know about the VFC ....

I have found that I can minimize popping by minimizing the motion of my right wrist when shifting.

If it just pops every now and then I wouldn't worry about it. Mine pops about 1/3 of the time and sometime it will pop when I start it up. My bike is stock except for WD pipes.

Complete stock you mean even the O2 sensors are still connected ?
My friend just bought a hardball and bone stock, even the O2 sensors are still connected, but he changed the exhaust to RPW swept and is irritated by the popping too ...
What solutions could i give him ?
