Unhappy Back Firing

I have a 1999 VN750 and everytime I back off the gas it backfires more than I want to admit to. I have Cobra pipes which were on the bike when I purchased it. I have had the engine rejetted per a dealer and still no luck. Then I was told it is the pipes if I had stock pipes this would not happen is this true. The noise drives me nuts and my neigbors aren't real thrilled either.

Does anybody have an answer?

Re: Back Firing

Even after the re-jet, could it still be running too lean? Thats why a lot of us will adjust the fuel/air mixture screw and the do the coasters/marble trick.
