I have a 2014 1200T with V&H slip ons. It's a Harley, low RPMs, it needs to make some noise. Off the throttle, let it coast in gear. Some snaps, a gurgle, a pop back. An American bike, let it complain when not at WOT. ;)

Hate to say it, but those snaps, pops and such are / were signs of poorly a tuned engine, or leaking exhaust.

when you put the slip ons on the bike, did you remap? I know they're just slip ons but FI is tricky and it's best to make sure it's done correctly.

Try putting a set of XIEDS on. They fatten mixture a little help & cool it off a bit. My Softail gurgles grumbles pops slightly a bit with slip ons.

Since my 2014 xl1200c likes to be in the shop, I went out and bought a 2004 xl883c from someone off of Craiglist. It has the old Harley sound that we enjoy so much. I does have on screaming Eagle exhaust pipes.
In 10 years the 2004 had less than 5400 miles, hell, I put that much on the 2014 in 6 months!! Now for the Harley dealer to get the 2014 back on the road!
