    Running in time for 2012 FZS

    Hi all,

    Picking up my new 2012 FZS this comming Mon/Tues. Dealer tells me no need to run in ski as it is already run in from factory? Reckons just take it easy for the first hour then Im good to go? Had to run in my last ski 2007 GP 1300R. Your comments on this would be much appreciated.

    Thanks

    Personally, I would warm up for 5 minutes just idling than a few minutes of half throttle and then let it rip. That's what I did, its considered the 'greenhulk' method.

    I used the "greenhulk" method. I wanted my rings to be good and seated, and guess what, no GIO problems.

    +5...The rings need to be seated within the first 30 minutes run time. A couple of warm ups and cool downs and let'r rip.

    Exactly what I did. warmed it up and let it cool down about 3 times. No problems.

    Follow your owner's manual. Also make sure you replace the intake grate on it with the R&D grate to avoid getting tossed off and injured. (see link below for more info) Congrats on your new Yamaha! That is a great ski and you will love the power.

    Thanks Guys for the feedback. I guess with 3 years factory warranty, I will take it easy the first hour then ride it like I stole it. WOO HOO.

    Thanks for that, been reading regards getting tossed off. I guess this hasnt been rectified for the 2012??? So buy changing intake grate with a R&D plate will that ensure problem is fixed???
