Gents,
I bought a new 2009 XP550. I now have about 500 km's on it and haven't really driven it hard (yet). I'm hearing that you should "break-in" your bike and get your first tune up/servicing. Can anybody tell help me out with a few things??
1. What 'breaking in' actually does/means.
2. Why and what does the first tune up consist of?
3. When should I get it done? (500kms on bike now)
4. When should I get my first oil change?
Msg me or email
[email protected] as i'm still trying to figure this website out.

Thanks for any advice and knowledge you guys can share

Dan
