    Break in ?

    Im pickin up a 2010 FXSHO tomorrow . That only gives me a couple of more weeks of riding in NJ. My question is what do most of you guys do to break in a new machine. Is there a different break in procedure because of the supercharger or do i just take it easy for the first hour or so and then just ride it like i stole it.

    Worst thing you can do is take it easy. I break them in with wide open bursts for about 10 to 15 seconds and then let off throttle quick and letting it coast to idle do that about 10 times total with a 10 minute cooling period in the middle and you are done breaking it in.
