100 miles on the bike so far, but ever since I've been riding it, seems that when you engine brake in 2nd or 1st gear, I get a lot of popping/back-fire out of the exhaust.

Is this normal on a stock bike?

Or does this mean the bike is running too lean? After about 70 miles, looked like I was down to half a tank so I filled it up with the high ocatane gas. Still no help.

If its a mute point right now, I'm not too concerned, I'll be putting my Tab pipes with their tuner on next week :)

Hmm, no back-fires or popping for me at all. I only use high octane fuel, but even on the free tank that came with the bike I had no problems.

Try the Tabs, any further problems it might be worth getting the bike dyno'd and set up correctly.

Either that or pop in the dealers whilst the bike is still stock.

Mine popped when it was stock. It stopped after I added the Race Tuner.

Mine popped and gurgled on decel stock. Mine popped and gurgled on decel with TAB baffled pipes and tuner. My dealer did a 1250 download and removed TAB tuner for now, no more pop n' gurgle. Runs like a scalded ape.
