Default Can search and find the do's, how about some of the don'ts?

Just ordered so haven't recieved my bike yet. Thought I'd ask what are some of the major and maybe not so major do nots for the motored bike?

Some of the stuff may be obvious ie. jumping, wheelies, running from the cops etc...

Are there any misconceptions that are widely reccomended through a google search or any other that are proven to be misleading? Kind of like the tornado fuel saver or leafblower supercharger for cars? Not looking for speed, just anything that tries to be misleading in the aftermarket realm of these bikes that may compromise safety and/or longevity.

Maybe my own curiosity will help others as well. Trying to learn everything I can before I learn through my own misfortune.

Don't run for extended periods downhill, with no throttle.
Don't baby the new engine, and DON'T run it at very low speeds during break-in.
Don't over tighten your chain.
Don't think using too much oil is a good thing.
