I doubt the mid pipe to pipe joint can leak, but isn't it possible to leak at the head ? Also an intake leak can cause popping. Was that checked ? I have found when taking a bike to a mechanic it's best not to self diagnose. In other words, rather than tell them to check for exhaust leaks because it's popping, it's better to tell them to fix the popping. Now you've told two mechanics to check for leaks, and the bike still pops, which is what you really wanted them to fix, but you didn't ask them to fix the popping. Capiche ?
