1st ride on new bike 5 minutes ago...

Had the bike for 2 weeks, and finially took it out! I'm on a crash diet and had not planned to due much riding until alot of weight had come off, but what the hell? Well with all the talk about it being a dog, it felt pretty zippy! I have not been on a bike in 10 years, and it was enough to make me nervious at times. The wheel will absolutrlry come up in 1st, but not so much in 2nd. I really didn't test this out much though. I could have been in 3rd? Next, the bike felt smaller than my old DR650, and thats a bad thing as i'm pretty darn big right now. I have to lose some weight now, or buy a Harley.:busted: I sure hope the "give it Hell' Breakin method is correct as that's waht I just did. I ran it around the block, and i'm current looking out the window waiting for the cops to arrive.:moon: One thing I still don't care for is the thumper / tractor sound. Will a Yosh help, or will it just sound like a louder tractor?

the sound will grow on ya, and you're probably going to want to add a pipe. The best deal on the market as far as a pipe goes is the SSW/MRD pipe, last i heard, at 460$ including shipping. Yosh Titanium power at an affordable price.

Where in Fla are you? i'm in the Tampa area.

Good luck with your new ride

      Anyone’s air box smell like gas ? Is this normal ? Air filter is bone dry but it reeks in there .... I’m assuming cause of the carb being semi filled with gas ??

      So I’m reading these horror stories of the stock vacume operated petcocks failing and letting gas into the oil .... how many of you guys switched over and is it worth it to switch to manual ?

      Hey guys . I feel like I post here way to much lol 
       
      anyway after having my bike kn it’s side overnight to fix a cracked stator cover .... I come to find out that I also accidentally left the pet cock in the prime position .... constant gas flow to carb ... now my oil smells strongly of gas ... my question is ... was it the bike being on its side that made the gas get into the oil or the prime position on petcock that made this happen ? Or both ? I didn’t ride it much at all after discovering... I assume. I should drain the oil obviously but any other suggestions ? Always appreciated -mark
