Will you need to re-tune the carburetors when you put straight pipes on the bike? Probably -too- yes you will.
To get the jetting and fuel mixture screws set right you'll need to learn how to 'read' the spark plugs.
I hate to admit I don't know what the lollipop mod is...

Semi - I believe the lolipop mod is a round disk on a rod that you can adjust its angle inside the tailpipe to adjust backpressure.

I didn't know it was adjustable but I know or think I know it's about a disk, most often a washer, to create back-pressure. Different size washers and holes. But adjustable would be cool. Not sure how that is achieved.

The adjustment is in who you install the lollipop with the bolt through the pipe with a nut on the bottom .
You just loosen the nut an the washer will be free to move .
Think of it kinda like a butterfly value .

Oh. In the olden days that was called a Snuff-or-Not.
I believe it had a spring loaded exterior 'stem' that you could twist to snuff the exhaust, or not, without tools.
Haven't seen or thought about those for years.
