I think I found it. I looked at spark plug wires and think I had the 2 mixed up, I swapped them around and no backfire.

I'm having the same, but I'm not sure that I can isolate mine to one side. Are you hearing anything from the carbs (or were you?).

I was on left side, had 1 and 3 backwards, reversed them and backfire dissapeared. I still get some popping if I get it to 5000 rpm and hit it a few times. It might be the aftermarket exhaust the previous owner put in.But no pop if I keep a constant throttle and let off, on when revs high 2 to 3 times. anyone heard of this with aftermarket exhaust?
