Wrong. There is a tee in the vacuum lines  under the airbox, and if you don't 
seal it off, the TB's are sucking unmetered  air. The easy fix is to just cap 
the nipples on the TB's, or connect the TB's  with a piece of uninterrupted 
hose. The port into the TB is so small that either  one has essentially the 
same effect, but you can't leave it sucking  air.

Your popping problem was caused by the right  throttle cable getting hung up 
atop the adjuster. This is a very common problem  with owner-serviced 
Oilheads, and I fix at least 25 bikes a year that are towed  in just from the owner 
not being careful enough while refitting the  bodywork.
