My only problem is keeping this darlin' under 6000 rpm for the break-in period. It's killing me. Thankfully, I already have 170 miles on it. Love it!

I hear ya! That first redline run is going to be so saweeet!!!

A car guy that is a friend of mine informed me of this technique that he came across that he uses for his car engines. Turns out it is specific for motorcycles, and doesn't actually veer too far from what the Suzuki factory manual states. Well done Suzuki!

Welcome from the C-Bus metro area. O-H! Which dealer? I picked mine up a couple of weeks ago from ASK on the east side.
