Re: Finally! Hello
Sure glad you caught that front fender before it became an issue. However, keep an eye on the rear one too. Either front or rear can fail and get you into trouble, (ask me how I know).
As far as the exhaust being loud, are you using the kit supplied muffler? They aren't typically loud. Some aftermarket exhaust, or modified mufflers can be annoying.
There are many opinions on break in procedures but the general consensus is, "don't baby it". The engine needs some hard runnig during break in. Don't abuse it. No need for extended periods of wide open throttle runs, but long runs of slow riding isn't good either.
You can do some searching for discussions on break in procedures. Read and decide for yourself what seems right and try it.
