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.
