Default Popping on decel/ different spark plugs?

Have any of you that are having the decel popping problems tried other then NGK plugs? I had champs in mine till 2 days ago when i put in a new set of ngks ive noticed my idle is not as good/smooth, and i get more popping on decel and between shifts. With the champs the popping was almost not there. I will be going back to champs tonight.

That is kind of strange. Do the Vics come with Champion plugs from the factory? I have not taken mine out yet to see what they are.

Ok heres some pics of mine. The first 2are ngk dcpr6e they have about 150 miles on them and have not colored yet. These were done after 5 miles of continuous 70mph, held the throttle and hit the kill switch. The second 2 are champs they also have a couple hundred miles on them, 15 today with the last 5 continuous 70 mph held throttle and hit kill switch. Its 40 degrees out and im running 89 octane non-oxygenated gas, lloyds air filter, thrush glasspacks, and disconnected O2 sensors. After swapping plugs the idle was immediately noticeably better. Now my bike doesnt pop that much anyway so im sure for those of you that have the popping trouble im sure this is not a cure all, i am mainly stating what mine does and wondering if anyone else has tried other plugs.

Takes over a 100 miles for plugs to break in.
If your letting off the gas and getting popping thats a sign of lean. If thats your problem then un hook your 02's that will make it run richer.
Do not use Holiday gas or SA gas. Do Fleet Farm BP Quick Trip and do 91 octane.
You can do a search on the net that will tell you more station

Which E3 plugs do you run? For car use ive never heard much good about them. Supposedly they are only working well for 8-10,000 miles. Havent heard much about other usage though. Is there noticeable improvements?
