If you're talking about "engine breaking" one way to smooth things out is to increase the idle speed. I'm not going to pretend to know the mechanics behind it but ever since I upped my idle speed for the winter months there's less breaking (and popping, etc.) on decel. I normally keep my idle speed fairly low because I love both the popping and not having to jump on the breaks all the time.

Maybe someone more knowledgeable can explain what's going on here? Just a thought.

What is there to explain? You let off the throttle ,you stop
Yeah, maybe it is that simple. I guess I was thinking maybe there's something about the bonnie's unique engine config (360 deg, carbs, flywheel, etc.) that makes it more noticeable or pronounced than other scoots.
