    I pulled the trigger on a vitpilen 701 today!

    Most likely won’t receive it for a couple of weeks as I’m traveling and the closest dealer was 200+ miles away.

    This is my first new bike. What is the suggested method for break in? Anything I should know?

     

    Thanks in advance!

    Manual says don’t rev over 6k during first 1000km/620mi. That’s mostly it.

     

    The only things I would add are:

    1)  Don’t lug the motor. The 701 motor can be luggy in its lower rev range, and when you aren’t revving over 6k you are in that range a lot.

    2) Watch the oil consumption, mine was way down by time of first service.

    3) Don’t let it sit at a static RPM (as in when riding on freeways for long stretches). Try to move through the gears frequently.

    4) See if your dealer will install the latest ECU update it just got when they prep the bike for you. It helps the low-end fueling.
