If i rev it high and then drop it, i get flames from the exhaust, is that normal?

Yeah, that shouldn't be a problem or anything. I've seen my bike, my friend's R6, and my friend's R1 all do it, so I hope it's nothing serious!

It's just unburned fuel hitting the hot exhaust and igniting outside of the engine rather than internally. Time spent on tuning can help to reduce the popping and the flames, but it won't completely eliminate them.
