Default A question or 2

I bought new 09 Kingpin 8Ball. I noticed a few things today
1 both exhaust pipes are turning blue up at the head. Lean much
2 popping here and there on decel and sometimes under throttle early
3 looked at air filter. I was told its the performance stage 1 filter looks white with a mesh all around it. Kinda like K&N but red with oil.

They said it was remapped, but Im starting to doubt that, and the filter furthers the doubt.

I think it's pretty normal for the head pipes to turn a little blue, maybe not the heat shields, but the actual pipes will blue.

From doing a search on here, it seems like some popping on decel is pretty much normal.

Does your bike have o2 sencors? If so disconnect them. This will richen it up a tad bit.

I've been reading up and have notice a lot of mention about the disconnecting the O2 sensors.
Would that put the bike in limp mode like a car and/or void the warranty?

Yep, it remains in open loop, thus running a tad bit richer. Just plug them in if you need to bring it in to the dealer.
