Default 2000 Honda VT1100 Sabre Shadow backfiring

I have a 2000 Honda VT1100 Sabre Shadow. It's got aftermarket Vance and Hines pipes. The bike has had a backfire since I've had it. It originally occurred randomly during deceleration. I had the jets done and now, unless the idle is set too high (doesn't backfire but gathers speed through high gears), the backfire occurs everytime during acceleration.
A new K&N filter and plugs were installed, and I've had the bike back to the shop a few times but no change. I'm told I probably have to live with it as it's likely a sympton of the set-up. It doesn't sound right.
Any suggestions on a fix?
