If i ever get another bike, I'm gonna have to give my bud Bruce a call... see if he can still get bikes at cost price from Yamaha's factory racing division

vehicle identification number.... the dealership told me if i have it serviced elsewhere, the other dealership might raise their eyebrows when they see my bike is 'registered' under the Yamaha racing program.. so they just gave me 'heads-up'. I had my local yammie dealership do the 1st servicing with no hassles.
All in all, I'm happy I'm still with Yamaha, love my bike, and can't wait for the spring. Gonna have to take it easy though because I had just finished my break-in before putting her away... I rode an 01 and 02 before, and both of them felt quite a bit different than the 04...

nice bike, good deal. I got mine for $8100 otd. as for the break in. Change the oil early. The break it in hard method I have heard nothing negative on, but from doing it on the last bike and changing the oil early/often there was plenty of little bits of metal on the drain plug. I did the first change @ 50 miles, then again at around 200.

I was planning on an oil change @30 miles then 100 then 600 then 1000

then 1600...ect...

Good idea??

Someone told me that 30 mile seems to soon because there might be little pices of mettal comming from the engine/tranny still.

What do you guys think?

BTW where do you live and how did you get it so cheap??
