Isnt the break in within the first 25-50 miles? That's when the wearing process will be at it's peak and shouldnt you rev the piss out of it like you would normally ride it till then?

I would probably break her in for the first 30 or 40 miles so the seals can seat nicely. After that I ride her like I stole her. Welcome.

Your at 220 miles? You are definately broke in. Now go ring the shit out of her. You haven't experienced anything till you shift her at 16K RPM.:fact

Those seat cowlings are the GYTR Seat Cowlings you get at a Yamaha dealership. You might need to order one if they don't carry them on stock.

thanks man. I guess yall are going to make me get on it. lol
Haha yes..definitely get on it, but be careful. The engine oil is very thin and is filled with a lot of metal shavings due to the break in. Dont keep her up in redline for long periods of time.

Unzip her pants and smack that @ss!
