I have read that they come stock a little lean...try adjusting your fuel screw and get a larger pilot jet if needed.

The main has no effect on decel backfire, as the throttle is closed during decel. The pilot is where the fuel would come from.

A certain amount of popping is normal, and indicates a correctly jetted pilot circuit. Excessive popping can mean either an air leak into the exhaust system (check that first) or lean idle jetting.
