This just might be my neurosis ... but you need to take it real easy on that engine while your new rigns are cutting in ... Like the first 100 miles nothin above 2500rpm ... and the next 400 nothin above 3500 ...

There are all kinds of theories about cutting in rings ... and I am no expert ... but rings that don't seat correctly can really screw up the inside of your cylinders.

Just take it easy for 500 miles and you should be fine ...

PS - The bike looks GREAT
