Question Running - in restrictions ?

Just picked up my 790 yesterday ( beyond happy !) apart from keeping to the recommended rev - range during the running in period (600 miles), the dealership also said neither to use the quickshifter or remove the db killer (baffle) until the first service at that 600 (ish) mile mark. I was too excited at the time to question either request and frankly I really don't mind as its such a joy to ride but I did wonder if anyone else had been told the same and if so what were the reasons ?

I was never told this
I used the quick shifter a lot, it's a joy and part of the fun of this bike
when you mention remove baffle what slip on do you have fitted?
the standard exhaust is a major job of cutting to remove baffle and is very hard to look neat, the Akra can easily be removed

playing with the exhaust will change fuelling slightly but I doubt it would have an adverse affect

Nothing mentioned to me about not using the quick shifter when running it in either, nor in the handbook.

Ok so I've just been up to the dealer to pick up the stock exhaust (the one I had fitted is the Akrapovic) and asked them for a bit more detail and to be honest it sounds like they're just being a bit over - cautious. I got a broad answer that its "better" for the engine to keep the baffle in (until the 1st service) and regarding the QS he said it's designed to work best under load (changing up) and since the engine's not being put under heavy load during run - in it's better not to use the QS.

Quite right there's nothing in the manual about this either so I reckon its just them being overly careful. Reckon I'll get the 600 on the clock pretty quick anyway !

he is correct the quick changer works better under load

the akra baffle is easy to remove instructions are on the 790 forum or I can copy you if required

I was told that the quick shifter was disabled until first service, but coming off a striple that had one installed, I used it almost instantly by accident shortly after leaving the dealer. When I checked the menus it was enabled and didnít seem to have done any harm. I did try avoid using it for the first few weeks just in case.

Hadnít heard the baffle one before though.
