Do you know if it is stock or has it been chipped? I am with Patric on keeping the RPM up above 3K when riding. Easy low RPM from a stop to get going to save the dry clutch but then keep it above 3K and ride it like you stole it. If it has been chipped or if someone messed with the stock ignition timing then all bets are off.
Although I have never heard an LT ping I know that they will and it will do damage over time. Now having said that and you are a new LT owner I'll give you same advice I give all new LT riders. Never listen to your engine run with your helmet off, the sounds you hear will scare the crap out of you.
