Another PV Question

I'm getting an up-shift pop, only sometimes, from 2nd to 3rd. I've seen other threads about upshift popping. How do I know if it's the map or loose exhaust flange???

I didn't do it originally when I uploaded my map from Jaimi. Just started and like I said is only sometimes. I can almost make it do it buy loading the exhaust by not letting off the throttle soon enough when I clutch.

Does anyone know what torque the exhaust should be tightened to? Or should I just replace the gaskets? If so, what gaskets?

I had a friend with a street glide running a Dragula and was getting a lot of upshift popping. Everyone kept telling him exhaust leak and he tightened his exhaust so much he had to have the bolts drilled out later to replace the gasket.

Try a different map and see how the pop is affected. If it helps, compare the maps in the decel area. To check for exhaust leaks, I used a birthday candle and the crossover under thr bike blew it out.

the torque on the exhaust header bolts is not very high.

on the front cylinder, you tighten the top nut to 9-18 in/lbs, then tighten the bottom nut to 100-120 in/lbs and then go back and tighten the top nut to 100-120 in/lbs.

the rear cylinder uses the same specs, only you start with the bottom nut first.

I understand the concept of reality, but find it too confining for a way of life.
