    SHO any faster after breakin ?

    Recently got my new SHO, i put 6 hours on it and it still feels more slugish than my friend's SHO with 70 hours, didnt get GPS top speed yet but it feels different.
    Also people with a new SHO check all your screws and bolts i found some of them landing on my feet while riding and a bunch were loose all around the ski.

    we saw a gain in speed of about 1.5 mph gps aftr abt 20 hrs it seems thats when the engine starts to loosin up, also get cha a few mod's bolted on and 70 is right there, good luck and dont forget ya 10 hr service

    Just went out today and got 20 hours on my FZR, i hit 69.1 when my previous best was 68.3 and the 68.3 was in cooler weather. So it takes a while to loosen up, but when it does its sweet
