High all, I recently bought a used 2006 YZ450F in good condition that came with the manual (which I will be reading thoroughly) but thought I would ask if there are any "must do's" that aren't covered in the manual.

The bike has a fuel screw already. I had it out once last weekend and it runs great. Didn't get much time on it though, got 10 miles from camp and blew my front tire. lol
Thanks for any tips, TT is a great site for info!
