929 low power on first ride following storage

I took my 929 out of winter storage last week and gave her the first run in awhile. I noticed the pitch was low and it seemed like something was bogging down the exhaust or maybe even the intake?? Anyways it ran tired and around half power all the way through the power band until about 25 miles into my ride. Then something "popped" or got blown out of the engine/exhaust and a quick jerk and boom... everything was back to normal. It was night and day of the issue.

Any ideas of what it was? My bike is stock and up to date on the maintenance. I've ruled out bad gas. Is there some type of exhaust valve on the 929 like the intake box flapper that might need to be replaced?


Thanks

Maybe the other two cylinders started firing? Check your ignition.
