When you say 10-15min at idle to slow speed. Did you go fast at all ?
If you go less than 8 mph your cooling system doesn't work and it is possible to overheat in that time.
Backfiring could also mean lean which would make it run hotter. Look for an air leak/ stuck hot start.

Is your bike still backfiring ? Check your plug to see if you're lean. Even if you only speed up a couple times above 8mph it should be enough to not overheat.

Look for any air leaks on carb boot.
Check your spark plug. If you have a really lean running problem it will be obvious with the white plug tip.
