Which hose would that be?

bumpylives I had the same problem on my 1993. I put a #42 pilot jet in and it has never done it again.

Lube_It Evaluate carb setting ... may be to lean. 'Richen" the carb, or consider the $0.22 cent mod.

I bought a 2009 with 2700 miles on it in April. When I was shopping around I came across several 09's with low mileage. Strange coincidence I suppose. I have the same pop on deceleration from air intake system. Bike runs great

pdwestman Technically, popping out the muffler is an 'After-Fire'. A 'Back-fire' is back thru the carb & air filter.

And I'll vote for a missing nut on the header pipe and a bad gasket because of the missing nut.

ace I have checked the pipe to muffler clamp. Will check header bolts. thanks

GoMotor The gen2 KLRs (2008 and newer) have an automatic air injection system at the head that introduces some fresh air into the exhaust chamber in the head during throttle closed deceleration. This will cause some popping on deceleration (sounds a little like a Harley -just a little).

A leak in the exhaust system can cause backfiring. Check the bolts where the header pipe connects to the head and where the pipe pipe clamps to the muffler.
