Mine was a used on but I had no idea of how many miles or hours were on it. The nubbings on the tires were still on it so there were not very many of either.

I kept the speed down and varied it from around 4 mph up to 8 mph and then short burst up and over 30 mph. I tried not to run at just one speed for too long, either a low speed or top end.

Always break in a new motor.

Always do a thorough warm up before riding.

Follow the manual, and make sure to change out all the oils diff's and all.

Break in oil get very dirty quickly.
My rear diff oil was filthy at 100 miles.

Thanks Guys for the info... I'll follow the manual for the break in period then.. As of right now she only has 3 hours run time and those have been pretty slow riding. Of course varying the speed but nothing hard.. Once the 20 hours are up I'll do the fluid changes as suggested...
