Hey there

I just want to say as your running it in check for loose fasteners all over the bike. The vibration shakes these things like crazy until they break-in but smooth out over time. Keep a close eye on the head studs and check the torque after it cools off several times over the break-in period. Don't do it hot, everything is so expanded from heat false readings will throw things off. One thing I'd advise is take the stock acorn nuts off and chuck them into a dumpster, they have no place on a engine. Get some real good nuts from a nut-and-bolt place and get rid of that problem from the start.

Any questions ask away and read as much as you can. Lots of information scattered all over the place
