On a brand new bike? Change the oil and grease all bearings, set up your controls and ride it.

Heavier springs for sure, grips. I take it home and regrease and torque everything to factory spec. You'd be surprised at the stuff I've found loose on a bike. The worst was bars, first jump would have put them on the tank for a nice digger.

I put as many stickers as I can on it. Then I put it in the back of my truck and drive it all over town.

Did I mention that I wear my hat all gangsta and always have a power drink sticker displayed somewhere on my personal?

Do you have a rubber nut sack hanging from your hitch receiver?

I saw a guy yesterday that has his trailer light cables connected to his rubber trailer hitch balls so they light up at night. It was really classy.

This. I always ride it stock first so I know what mods I need to do to make it set up for me.
