Question about 2005 Honda VTX 1300 R
hello and welcome
backfiring is common associated with a lean condition. if the bike has a stock exhaust and air cleaner setup. most likely the pilot jet or main or both jets may have developed a builup. this is very very common. for this will produce the lean condition and cause popping. you may notice this more on decelleration. if slightly holding open the choke helps this a little bit. that will verify the lean condition. the carb float bowl should be removed and the jets removed and cleaned thoroughly.
if this bike does have aftermarket exhaust it is a good possibility that the jetting needs to be adjusted richer for the lean condition that the exhaust causes. thank you.

your carbs not getting enough fuel check the bowl and jets. I run a pice of wire down the jets even if they look open just to be sure. Speaker wire strands work well for the tiny holes
