Default 2008 KP 8ball owner

Bought my Kingpin 8 ball last september and been a member on here shortly after. Just getting around to my first post. So far I absolutely love the bike, just currently dealing with the notorious popping and 2% throttle bog.

Welcome Aboard , and yes the popping sucks .... Its just the nature of the beast . Post your set-up and somebody will shoot you pointers on reducing the POP.

I've gotten used to it but it's scaring all the dogs I ride by when people are out walking them lol. As soon as I can figure out the signature thing I'll have it up there.

I've been messing under that a good part of the day and can't find the edit signature option anywhere. Nothing beats looking like a newbie lol

Thanks for the welcome and help lilmags . Hoss, I've more or less gotten used to it. It has more pressing issues at the moment. I'll be posting in the tech section pretty soon I imagine. I did laugh at the lady walking her dog though, the bike let out a big bang and the golden lab nearly dragged her down the street lol

Otter
when riding and shifting try not to close the throttle all the way to stop popping. Kind a like doing a milded speed shift. Once you get the hang of it there will be no popping.
