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.
I love teh 08 KP. mine was abadass..I was ridn through ole claremore town one day. folks were walking the streets shopping in the antique shops and all and here i come. I blipped the throttle and KABOOM! 2 ladies screamed real loud it was halarious..get use to it dude its inherent in design..all of the freedom engines do it to some degree..
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
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.
