PAIR System & Popping on Decel

This might sound nutty but I kind of like the popping and backfiring that occurs on some bikes during deceleration. My understanding is that on a Strom, the PAIR system prevents this. If I remove/ disable PAIR, will popping and backfiring occur? If so, can this damage anything (e.g. TBs could get popped off their boots on a hard backfire (?).

It isn't the PAIR system. Do you have a DL1000? there are many threads on the lean problem.

Pat- 2007 DL650A was ridden to all 48 contiguous states. I didn't quite make it to 17,000 miles on the 2012 DL650A.
Nicknames I use to lessen typing, Vee = 2002-2012 DL1000s. Vee2=2014-2016 DL1000s. Wee = 2004-2011 DL650s. Glee = 2012-2016 DL650s

It is my understanding that the PAIR system is what CREATES the popping when an aftermarket exhaust is used because it injects air into the exhaust stream to complete combustion of any unburned fuel. It pops with the stock pipes on too, but you can't hear it as much. Or so I'm told...

Strictly as a point of logic, I fail to see how the PAIR system can be blamed for creating a problem that began when aftermarket equipment was installed ...

I had the same problem, the pop was really noticeable with the TB exhaust, blocking off the PAIR helped with the decel popping.

OK...we're not communicating here.

I like popping and spitting sounds on decel, but I can't get it with OEM exhaust. So...I installed a pair of Akra slipons....it sounds great, but still no popping.

How do obtain popping/ spitting sounds on decel?

This is the second weirdest question I've seen on this forum.

The blue ribbon goes to the guy who actually wanted to buy replacement orange warning stickers for his bike.
