He didn't get the best (fastest) color -- he got the orangeGlad to see you chose the best (fastest) color!
I'm in the middle of breaking mine in as per Yamaha's instructions. Just got my first 600 mile service done and am getting close to the 1000 mile oil change. After that I don't see a point in babying it anymore. I know there are tons of opinions on breaking in a bike, but I figure you can't go wrong going by the manufacturer's instructions which read: "0-600 miles avoid prolonged operation above 5600 rpm; 600-1000 miles avoid prolonged operation above 6800 rpm; 1000 miles and beyond the vehicle can now be operated normally." I'm not sure what they mean by 'prolonged operation' but I see no harm in getting up to 8 or 9k rpms every once in a while. I'm no expert though, so others will maybe have better recommendations.
She's primarily a commuter/hooligan bike. As for mods, I've already removed the reflectors, and nodded the plate bracket. I plan on making an under tail kit for it.Orange flakes gorgeous in the sun, this bike is a real keeper, congrats and welcome! This place is addicting too in a good way...
First mods? What's the plan ?
