Question about 2004 Honda VTX 1300
The carburetors have air cut valves that should minimize popping. Inspect the air cut diaphragms for air leaks, cracks ,and holes. Replace them if they are bad. A lot of backfiring is caused by air leaking past bad exhaust gaskets. Try replacing the copper o-ring style crush gaskets where the pipe goes into the head. If the pipes are two piece replace the gaskets where the head pipe meets the muffler ( or make some using fiberglass cloth).
