Re: motor out of box,,, any cause for alarm
that was the best and most solid advice i think I've ever seen here in the forum. Quick, concise, and to the point.
I generally replace all gaskets, hardware (particularly those chain tensioner bolts as they're soft as butter) and plug wire right out of the gate. Locktite is definitely your best friend on these, as well as that heads up on the 10mm.. I carry a small socket wrench and the fittings for my seat and wheels as well, and a couple extra tubes and clutch/brake/throttle wires to boot in a little pack so I don't get stuck on the road..
