But for luck & good wishes, I add a splash of Marvel Mystery oil to it also(maybe as much as an ounce?), just to play it safe.

Almost everyone using a decent X pipe will report popping, it's normal.
Great advice Dave
I dont always ride WOT, but when I do..I do my best to keep the rubber side down..Ride safely my friends!
