Break in - follow the manual and you cannot go wrong.

Me personally, for a new bike just grease it up and hit the track. As it breaks in make suspension adjustments and motor adjustments, but hit the track before making major mods because you might not need any! :)

I broke mine in hard. Changed the oil and filter after break in. Set the sag and played with suspension. Ride it like you stole it. :)
