Increase your pilot jet to a 48 or 50 and get the JD jetting kit blue needle in the 5th clip position. :cry:

I've been kind of fighting this one as well. I've got a stock YZ exhaust can with a PMB cap. It actually seems to do better with a leaner needle which seems kind of backwards. All of my other 4xx's have been a piece of cake to jet but the 450 has been a bit of a mystery. Anyway I started out going down the richer path (needle & pilot) but that only made it worse. Right now I'm running a JD red #4 and a 48 pilot/100 paj which is pretty good but still pops on occasion. This is not your typical decel popping but more of a snap as soon as you back off the throttle.

Also check for exhaust leaks, I know some of the slip-on dont seal well and cause bike to backfire.
