Congrats on the new toy! She's a beauty.
Here's some food for thought for your break-inGoing to have a hard time limiting my thumb pressure for this initial break in period:grin2:
I totally agree about the break in for more power. I break in everything I get like this and have since the 80's. My machines have been noticably faster than most of the same machines broke in the other way. My brother often got and still sometimes do get them at the same time. Mine is always faster and just as reliable. I still haven't told him my secret. I just tell him I broke it in already. Hahaha. Seat them rings!Here's some food for thought for your break-in
Break In Secrets--How To Break In New Motorcycle and Car Engines For More Power
I've more or less done the same thing on multiple brand new ATV's (including my Grizzly 450) and multiple race bikes. In 20 years I've never had an engine failure and have consistently had engines that had more power output than identical machines, with only discernable difference being how they were broke in. Saw it countless times on the racetrack too, with the bikes that were given this methodical and intentional break-in perform better and last longer. This is no where near saying to "beat on" your brand new engine.
Enjoy the new ride! And I agree with others, if you're going to be riding in rocky areas, add some front end protection.
Yea there isn't much protection underneath the machine but I wont be doing too much rock climbing.
One thing I did notice is there is no protection for the CV boots... any recommendations on whats out there for protection?
