    I'm thinking about buying this 08 kingpin tour it has 44k on the odometer looks and sounds good but should I be worried about the 44k? And it only 3500$

    These Vics only get better with age. For that price I would buy it. Got a picture? Link? Lol!

    My first Vic was a 07 Kingpin Tour and I loved it. They are beautiful.

    44K is nothing on that bike. Price is right as well.

    There's a thread on here with members who have over 200,000 on their bikes with just maintenance, no mechanical issues.
    Do not let what I'm going to say next put you off; the '08 and '09 were transition years for the fuel injection, I've found that the'06 and '07 bikes were a bit faster than the later models including the 106".
    For that price don't let it get away from you.

    If your are purchasing from the owner, ask if the throttle body adapter and IAC hoses have been replaced. Also push forward on the handlebars to check the riser bushings. Check the date code on the tires, 4-5 yrs. Old should be replaced regardless of the tread left.

    $3500 I would buy it if it started

    My 06 was faster than the later ones but they got way better gas mileage. The new injection was conserving fuel very well but wouldn't let it crank up as fast as the 06-07. But who is drag racing them. That bike will run for another 44k with no issues. You should buy it now if it starts runs and stops. It came with a few grand in extras the standard kingpin didn't have. I assume it has the fender ornament, chrome belt guard, windshield, bags etc.

    The bike will drive 80MPH all day without breathing hard.

    Good advice here. I bought a 08 KP with 20k on it and had to do the plugs, wires, TB adapter, IAV hoses, etc to get it to run right. Adding an intake and PC3 style tuner got it running just a bit faster than my friends low mileage 2013 stock Hammer 106. They are pretty much neck and neck from a dig, I pull on him a little from a 30 or 60 roll. But just barely.

    The bike runs and sounds great now. I absolutely love it and highly recommend you buy this one!

    I have an 04 with now over 80k and all is well. Normal wear and tear is expected. I never plan on selling. Great ride. I'd actually like to get another.

    Thank you for the input I ended up buying it last night rode it 2 hours home no a single hiccup. Where might I find the valve you are referring too?

    If the airbox has any wiggle to it, that's a good sign that the adapter has failed.
    If it runs like a watch you should be good? Just have a good look at all of the rubber.

    :yahoo:Good for you! Now you will have answer a zillion questions when you are out and about. What is that, is that American, how long have they been around? My favorite was as a HD guy and his wife walked away after looking at mine I heard the wife say, "We could have bought one them!"

    Just remembered so I am editing. You can also tell them that the Indian motorcycles inherited a lot of their DNA from Victory.
