Hi everyone! 500 miles on the gsxs so far and loving it!! 32years old and just swapped from r1 5vy to gsxs and don't regret it one bit .. Got plenty of questions to ask if I cannot find them in search bar ?
I asked around and general thoughts for new bikes was ride as normal from when you bought it, modern bikes dont have metal cast left inside the engine casings like they used to, I waited till 100 miles then gave it full revs, but several of my biker mates report no problems from 1 mile.Welcome mate, time for the first service almost and time to really break her in
The day i got it from the dealer is the day mine went to red line.
Break In Secrets--How To Break In New Motorcycle and Car Engines For More Power
Let it warm up, get on a freeway/highway where you can do 100kph/65mph. In second or 3rd, pull hard till you get to 100/65, then let the bike engine break down to 60/35mph. Repeat as much as possible for ~200 miles.
Then swap out for mineral oil, and keep mineral oil in it until first service then go semi from there.
