You're running lean. Most likely you need to adjust the pilot screw or go up a size on the pilot jet. See the jetting forum for instructions on how to do this if you don't know how. 4Strokes are NOT meant to sit and idle. The header glowing is normal and will be worse if you are runnning lean - which the popping indicates that you are. There is a chance that you have an air leak which would exacerbate your problem. Check the header, midpipe and manifold carb connections and make sure they are secure. bp

If you forgot to put your hot start down tight on the carb it will pop alot when you let off the throttle because of the extra air induced. Somewhere you are sucking in extra air. It will also do that if your needle is lean a clip.

My 04 used to pop until I installed, the JD jet kit. It was lean like they said, and it pops no more.

if you already have the jetting dialed in for the most part (you know your pilot, needle and main are good) then all you need to do is adjust your fuel screw

check the pipe for air leaks

check the carb manifold for leaks

test the hotstart, lube and adjust

if you still have problems, go up to a 45 pilot
