And here is my grom!

Land vehicle Vehicle Car Motorcycle Alloy wheel Land vehicle Motorcycle Vehicle Motor vehicle Alloy wheel

Today I drove 74km total, my dealer told me not to go over 6k rpm for the first 500 km.
Any toughts on that?

Had to go to 7k rpm on one certain road because cars where starting to push behind me :)


Anyways i love it, just love it!

Congrat's on ya new bike.
Running in has as many opinions as there are bikes...

The main thing in my opinion is not to strain the engine too soon.
So probably not too much of a problem with going over the 6000
But not to hold it for too long
Also don't try and hold a high gear on a hill, so the engine is working too hard.
Change down and try and keep it within the 4 to 6 thou revs.

Thanks for the info, no hills here so that's not a problem.

Lol where did that come from? :D
long story, when US peeps started to get their grom's and did topspeed testruns some of em said the red bikes were faster then the black ones..!

but we all know black is a spec op color that cuts better through the air, so the black ones are actually faster then any other color :D
