Finally running awesome again
When I got my Kingpin last year it really seamed to run a little rough at idle and it seemed that the only way it would idle properly was if I kept the fuel enriched on. Well that all changed today. With the help of a YouTube video I watched from the Vic Shop I pulled the tank and cleaned out the throttle body, buttoned it back up and started her up.
Also, when I had the air box cover off I also checked my fuel enricher adjustment and found it only opened ever so slightly, there was so much slack in the cable I can't believe it moved and opened at all. Before when I started the bike it idled only around 800 rpm and that was with the enricher turned up. Now after I started her it ran about 1400 rpm with the enricher off. I adjusted the Idle to 1000 rpm and took her around the block and it feels smoother and more responsive, I can't wait to open it up on the highway now.
I was running late today getting it back together and I didn't have time to pull the plugs and check them yet, so that's next. I have just over 14,000 on the bike now so I'm not thinking they need changed, but if it wasn't running right all that time I'm thinking they might, we'll see. Ready for the summer now!
