2 things. An exhaust leak or its too lean. If the exhaust system hasn't been touched, then turn your fuel screw out a little bit.

My 00' 426 does the same thing... Just replaced the midpipe muffler gasket and it is still popping. Fuel Screw is 2 turns out. Is it possible to have an exhaust leak where the header comes out of the motor?

How much backfiring are we talking about? Because, some popping on deceleration is fine and expected, but if it sounds like cannons going off than you might go over your jetting.

Not a whole lot... maybe it is just normal with mine at least. Thanks!

^^^ Correct. YZF's will pop just a little, even when properly tuned.
