But, it's good to know what it will take to fix it. I'll have to pull the transmission this fall and ship it off to Anton. . . . rats . . . .
. That's exactly what mine used to do I rode "around" the problem as you described for a year and about 6000 miles but it did slowly get worse and began doing it in second gear as well. The upside was that I learned to let the bike rev and that seemed to cure the pinging problem. I can use 87 octane pump gas most of the time now, whereas when I used to lug it around at low rpm it would rattle like a can of marbles in hot weather, even on premium.
