    Most likely it will have approx 300km on it and it will run a lot better than when it was new.

    If you bought it used, pretend that it had 0km, then use the above.

    The motors are all different. The above is just the 'standard' guideline.


    Best of luck on your adventures, mate!!

    take off the muffler & look at edges of rings - when they get shiny, you're getting there - if they're still black, you've got a way to go yet
