Popping on Decel, hesitation at WOT   Technical-Bikes

I will check those. Just had the rubber fittings off for the carb sync. One was hella tight and one popped off kinda easy. Maybe I’ll put a new one on there. I’ll end up checking everything like the carb boots and all for leaks. I was able to tighten one bolt on the rear exhaust but only like 1/4 turn if that. I am not looking forward to taking the carbs out, it’s always a pain. 

So I’ve had this carb setup since 2009 and it’s run great but I haven’t cleaned the carbs in a while.
