How long should you wait to mod you bike? Ive got 400 miles on my k7 600 and wanted to get exhaust, but i heard that if u mod your bike too soon it can damage the engine. I didnt plan on doing the exhaust for a few more months atleast, depending on what you guys think. thanks

Double ditto...figure you would like to be able to do a dyno run or map it after the exhaust, so gotta be ready for high power runs. But go to town on the cosmetics and suspension in the meantime. :)

I say immediately, if you want a new pipe...go for it.

I did the "easy" break in on my 600 and the "hard" break in on my 1k. I was at redline in first gear when i hit the 200 mile mark. I changed the oil at 50, 100, 200 and 600 miles.

Some people say wait until you have thousands of miles before you swap to synthetic oil, some people say do it after a hard break in run...at around 50 miles or so.

It is your bike and it is up to you...but if i were you, if i wanted a new pipe, i would throw it on there. I put the M4 on my 600 after about 60 miles and the Yosh on my 1k around the same mileage with no problems with either.

Just read what this guy has to say. You either belive him or you dont.

This guy knows what he is talking about. I followed his break in procedure for my built motor in my car. 20,000 miles later the motor has perfect compression across the board. I did the same with the bike:)
