First check your exaust pipe's where they connect to the head's to make sure there not sucking air on deceleration,common problem on these brute's. If the headpipe's check out ok then you can usually tune out most of the poping with the idle mixture screw's. Try giving each one a 1/4 turn in or out. Try the 1/4 "out" first. It's basically trial and error until you figure out what the bike want's.

Generally what I do is after doing a jet change or anything that deals with an adjustment on the carbs I leave the plastic side panel's off and ride it a few time's with them off. That way if you need to go back in and make another adjustment it's quicker to get to the carbs. Pretty much anything that I do that require's removing the plastic I'll at least ride it around for a few mile's before reinstalling it.

Well, if you've never done any carb work or rejetting the Brute will make you an expert!
Their one of the most time consuming bikes I've ever had to work on as far as the carbs go! The first time I ever did one I thought "holy crap, I have a hundred bolts and screw's outta this thing and I still can't see the carbs!" It's pretty much pulling all the plastic off that's so time consuming.Once the plastic's off it's a piece of cake.
