Recommended Posts

Is there anything I should check now the break in period is well over?

Cam chain tensioner? valves?

We did a valve check on my 08 at around 40hrs. One of the exhaust valves was actually too tight (had to be from factory) so we shimmed it back to spec. otherwise everything was perfect. I would replace your Y radiator connector and cross over (radiator) hose if you havent already. It's a problem waiting to happen if you run your bike hard on a hot day. Awesome bike that became 10x better for the dez with revalved suspension (LTR Racing) and a scotts dampner.

I would go through your swingarm linkage and steering bearings. My lower shock mount bearing was toast at 40 hrs. Upon removing the rear end, I found deep groves in my pretty white frame from parts rubbing that needed to be addressed also.
