Default Re: Is that a popping I hear?

If this is a new build its possible the chain is catching on some rough edges of the drive sprocket. There is also an area inside the clutch actuator cover that often interferes with the chain. Remove the cover and inspect it for contact near the front edge where the chain rides over the sprocket. Is your chain well lubricated? Is it the kit supplied #415 chain? They can have some irregularities that will cause noise and binding.
As for your final question; I'm not quite sure what you're asking. Could you be more specific?
