Not that the cap is the cause of pops, but that's where i would continue ...first keep it running.

I'd check those reed valve plugs....and carb boots.

A good SeaFoam treatment can't hurt either...

my bike had all sorts of epa junk, that I got rid of, it eliminated the 'pops'. Any remaining pops I got rid of by giving it more fuel with the A/F screw.

Did this just start to happen?

Might be time for a good carb cleanout.

I dont know the carbs on that bike, but on mine the idle screw is seperate then the A/F screw.

Did it always pop or just start?
