Did my test ride of a new (less than 1 mile on the ODO) 2014 1190R on December 26, 2013. When I returned I told the dealer I was keeping the key. No regrets. :D

Not wear, just grease. New chains have a lot (too much) grease on them. Wipe it clean several times. Excess grease will work its way out.
