Mag, under what conditions to you get popping? I doubt it's your battery as long as it's staying charged enough to start the bike. Wrap a few layers of electrical tape over the chafed portion of the HV lead. You can also watch for spark leakage in the dark, often you can see blue sparks jumping from the wire to the frame or other places they shouldn't.
