I went to look at the Kingpin.
I knew it wasn't perfect cosmetically, but it was more neglected than I had hoped. No biggie, probably would repaint it anyway.
My main concern is the exhaust smelled strong of fuel. When I would rev slightly and hold if for 5 seconds and then let off, it would puff a little light colored smoke. It wasn't black like too much fuel, wasn't quiet "oil blue", but those are the only choices. Right?
The bike has an S&S air box the owner had put on when he bought the bike. I don't believe he did any of his own maintenance so I'm not sure if the throttle bodies have ever been cleaned. He said he had it serviced by Vic shops, the last time was at a new shop, so he didn't think the shop was Vic trained yet. This bike has less than 7 thousand miles, was on dealer floors until 2007 when the seller bought it. The seller purchased another Vic in 2010, so this one's for sale since he doesn't ride it any more.
I have no experience with the earlier Vic motors, so I'm asking for help. I like the look of the bike, just don't to buy someone else's problem.
