+1 on the PJ. You should have a 45# or thereabouts in there. Either take it out and clean or if it were me, i'd pop a new one in there.

A problem with WR's.....go forever.

Check the valve clearances to keep everything tip-top. If the popping on decel persists, make sure you there are no leaks around the header.

Almost certainly nothing to do with the timing chain. I had a WR400 for two years with a rattling timing chain and it still ran fine. Unless it has jumped a tooth, but it doesn't sound like that from the symptoms you describe.

If it's not that Jet, my money's on one of the Exhaust vavles getting tight... check the valve clearances.
