The carburetor is allowing unburnt gas into the exhaust manifold. The presence of high heat and cylinder combustion ignites the fuel inside the exhaust and is typically seen coming out the pipe. The less restrictive/no baffling an exhaust pipe is the more pronounce the flame and popping. All engines do this in some degree, but excessive flame points to an overly rich fuel mixture.

Amazingly pointless. The blow off valve is there to release intake pressure if you have the turbo spinning and then go off the throttle suddenly. If you haven't got a turbo there's no intake pressure to release if you go off the throttle.

How do you make a baja 90 faster?

I have the same dirt bike and what you have to do is go to the carberator and twist a screw on the side of it to where it is all the way in and that pretty much makes the governor disabled . I have done this with my dirt bike and it added about 20 mph, it will not hurt the dirt bike in any way just take off the bulshtii governor that maeks it go slow as hell, i race against 125's and i still keep up now . good luck everybody ride hard another thing you could do is buy a rev box to give your bike more rpms but the only problem with taking off the govenor is that the govener is there so you don't blow up your bike cause without the govener your bike will go just as fast as you throttle it so you can blow it up
