heat cycle whats the procedure? just double checking before i bugger it lol

Start the engine and run it for a minute.  Shut it off, check everything over.

 

Start it up and ride it easy for 4-5 minutes while it warms up, then take it for a 10 minute romp at around 50-60% of it's capacity.  Don't lug it, don't rev it out.  Park it, check things over again, take a 10 minute break.

 

Fire it up again and spend 15-20 minutes at around 80% of its capacity.  Take another 10 minute break. 

 

Break-in is now over.  Change the oil after the first hour.

brilliant will give it a go thanks
