I have noticed when my bike is not getting enough gas, it pops. Are you sure you are getting adequate gas? Have you check the bowl to make sure it has fuel in it.

In addition to that, I have seen where a bad connection between the carb and the head can cause excessive popping. (cold air, limited fuel....pop pop). atleast, that is my experience with poping.

Mechanicca is probably the one person who can give you some serious insight. If I was u I would actively pursue some input from him.
