Running New Bike in

Recommended Posts

Hi all, just picked up new 520exc yesterday :) Was wondering how others have run their bikes in. Plan to do oil anad filter change ~ 150kms. Dealer wants it back ~400-500kms for scheduled 1st service. How long before she can be opened up and allowed to bark. Have been cruizing (no quick throttle changes) up and down gears to around 1/3 throttle. Dealer has rejetted, raised gearing and removed exhaust screen. I think this bike has potential but have'nt opened her up yet.

I believe the manual calls for a tank of fuel to be run through at moderately easy speeds.

I ran mine for about 4 hours of easy MX riding, and I changed the oil and filters at one tank of gas.
