    Hey guys I'm new to the site, I grew up on a 87 TW so I'm not new to the bike, just not shure about break in. I'm picking up a new 2013 TW tomorrow how often should I change the oil at first?and what about RPMs? The dealer says follow what's in the owners manual. I've heard a few different theory's of what's actually best for the motor. I appreciate the help

    Change it after the first 100 and then follow the manuals directions. That is the simplest way to do it. Many have their own break in methods but I am one of the few men that actually read the instructions. Do as you will and enjoy your new bike!
    '13 690 Enduro R too many frickin farkles...
    '07 KLX250 farkled (wife's bike)
    '86 BW80 farkled to size
    '10 TW200 you will be missed

    I'm not an aggressive rider, I just break them in the same way I normally ride. I change the oil at 100, 500, and 1000 miles.
    Only a fool would attempt it, and God help me, I am that fool!

    I try and vary my speed a lot for the first 500 miles or so........ When you change your oil always make sure the screens are cleaned good.........All kidding a side.. My dub runs better at 10,000 miles than it did for the first 500.... Have fun and welcome to the site. OMM.

    Read Motoman break in then make up your mind



    Minimally I would change the oil almost immediately and then again at 500 miles

    As stated above, change the oil several times before the 1000 mile mark.....at 100 miles,then perhaps 300,600,& 1000?.....one scenario....everyone has their own way. RPM's.....DO NOT putt-putt the engine!....RPM's also dictate oil pressure,don't starve it!. Vary the RPM's,kinda like in-town riding,then go for short back road rides (10 or so miles).It'll be fine!.

    Vary the engine power frequently and watch for high temperatures

    Thanks for the input guys. But I'm still looking for a TW! The dealer wouldn't live up to the deal the salesmen made with me so I'm still looking.
