"Do's" and "Dont's" for the GPR?
Im just trying to gather some information on what you should, and should not do on a GPR while riding. Stuff like doing spins, sharp turns, avoiding the lean RPM range (or how long you can stay in it). Just stuff that new owners like I should know about the machine while riding it. Maybe it would be nice to have something like this as a sticky? I see that Kevin is working on a "how-to" for the GPRs which is awesome but I don't know if that will include do's and dont's.

spins and sharp turns are what these things are fun at doing!
I know the first Do is to read up all you can and take care of all the preventative mods before anything!

In my opionion , remove oil pump and pre-mix! no margin for error that way....Other than that set a budget and ride it till the smc wears away.

Well, this isn't really about riding, but here's a couple.
Don't forget to put the drain plugs in before you drop it in the water.
Don't run water through it with the hose when it's not running.

Dont think for a minute the lean range stories are not real. Stay out of the 5 to 6K range for long periods of time...Like an idiot I did that one year where I was crusing for 5+ miles @ 6K and stuck it. The first sieze was tiny and as soon as I felt it I knew what it was. By the time I could get out of the throttle I stuck it going 50mph. Needless to say it broke into pieces.
