    I have been reading about the heat problem on these touring bikes. My question is before doing something to reduce heat, can it be done right away or should the engine broke in for awhile? I have never broke in a new engine yet and read the 30-60-30, here in Canada I guess it would be 50km-100km-50 in third gear, just a little nervous about doing that and if I do that I will haul it out of the city first.

    You can do heat reduction mods at any point like more fuel mainly and possibly an intake and exhaust modification (stage 1).
    The break in (30/60/30) really doesn't take that much time or road to do but you probably are better finding a road that doesn't have much traffic to do it for safety reasons.
