Unhappy Left side exhaust backfire

De-goated, reed valves blocked off, no exhaust leak. No backfire from right side, but backfire on the left !!! Any suggestions?

I know you said you had no exhaust leaks but you still might. Check the nuts on the exhaust manifold and also try using high temp silicone on all the joints. You can get it at wal mart (orange). It's easy to do and just might fix it.

Well I've tried pretty much all I know and still have the popping 2 3/4 or 3
didn't change anything. Checked for leaks, re-tightened coasters etc.
