I have never had a brand new bike and have never worried about the "break in" period. I am doing some research for a friend that just WON a 2012 SG. He is wanting to know what this "break in" period is and what do the driving conditions consist of. (Slow, fast, etc) The reason I ask is we are going to Bike Week at Myrtle Beach this week and he is concerned stop and go riding at the beach will not be good for the bike this early in the life of the bike. (Approx. 200 miles on bike) Any info would be much appreciated. Thanks!
First off congrats to ur buddys win, my OL won a 48 last october!! As jeff mentioned......Secondly, have him read his owners manual, info on this subject is in it! 1,000 miles is the break in period. Don't lug the motor and don't rev too high either. On the highway don't ride at a constant speed for a long period of time, alternate speeds
