Run it! If you can find a couple roads to keep the throttle position changing that would help the break in a little bit plus would be more fun. I have over 1500 miles on mine and have taken it all over the state. Check the air pressure and go!!

I agree, that's what road trips are for. I am thinking about getting one of these over the weekend and I plan to take mine straight from the garage on a 400 mile road trip through Arkansas, come home change the oil and hit the track next time out. 2 schools of thought on break in baby the hell out of it for a few hundred miles or ride the damn thing out of the box as you intend to ride it after the break in procedure. I have done both with the same results. Have Fun!!!! :thumbup:

go for it because when you hit about 1800 miles the motor wakes up and the gas mileage gets better (65-70 mpg)
Is this a defined programming thing in the ECU, or just something you noticed? I've only got about 400 miles on mine so far as the damn things been torn apart since last week. The bike isn't broke mind you, I'm just waiting for some SM parts to show up so I can ride in the sportsman class in the coming months. I've been told by people that know more than me this is a great cheater bike for that class... :rock:
