The pipe could be a little loose, leaking exhaust. This is likely the cause if it didnt happen before.

Did you rejett for the pipe? Pop on decel after putting on a new pipe sounds like a lean condition. When you upgrade your airflow, you'll need to jet richer to make up for it.

:thumbsup: Check the header gasket and the mid pipe joint.

this can normally be cured by ritchening the pilot screw, if it does not stop popping on decel by the time you are at 3 turns out you will need a bigger pilot jet

I installed a white bro's carbon pro on my 06 and it popped like that. I raised the needle two clicks and installed bigger main. Problem fixed.
