  1. check the valves first. set carb to stock settings, then adjust. popping exhaust usually means you are running rich or exhaust leak as mentioned. popping through the carb means lean.this happened to me last sunday riding in the cold we had over the weekend.the bike was set for summer settings. fired it up and it popped through the carb. adjusted the air/fuel mixture screw.problem solved.i will switch to the needle to the jd jetting blue needle to richen it up across the whole throttle range.
  2. michelin tires are sized differently. i'm not sure why. i run an s12 on the rear. dunlop size 110, michelin size 130. hope this helps. the michelin is a good tire.
