My '07 450 is almost here!

I just got the email from my buddy at the Yammie shop letting me know my WR was at the warehouse. It could be here as early as tomorrow.
I prolly won't sleep until I get it now...
I was thinking that I would ride it 100% stock a few times, then do the free mods. I am a little concerned about riding it without tearing apart the swingarm and improving the lube situation back there though.
I did a search, and it seems like some of you put a few miles on your bikes before you tore the ass end apart. I figured I would do all the carb work and associated free mod dis-assembley at the same time as the swingarm.
So, do ya'll think I can ride it a few times and be alright without the extra lube? (don't read too much into that last sentence, you dirty minded bastidges! )
Thanks for any advice.

As far as doing the mods first.... When I got my '02 XR 400 brand new in Dec. of '01, I got a pipe and some other stuff for it almost immediately. So I never really got to experience the differenct that stuff made to the bike. So I want to drink in the slowness of the stock bike first. I'm betting that even in choked up form, the WR will smoke my slightly modified XR.
Then I'll open her up!
I got an email late yesterday letting me know my bike was on a truck, enroute to the dealership.
