    I read this thread: https:// fz10 .org / thread/286/break-brand-new-fz-10
    (stupid I can't link directly)
    So should I really just ride it like a stole it the first 20-30 miles then change the oil? I want the best possible break in and I can afford a quick oil change.
    Also does it need a new oil filter after that?

    It actually says that riding it like you stole it is the worst thing to do for the bike.

    I can't comment on the engine break in as I am not a mechanic / engineer but you should be aware of the fact that this a new bike that you are not familiar with it and depending on your riding experience you might be better off taking it easy. The other components that need breaking in are the brakes, suspension, gearbox.
    Just follow manufacturer recommendations and take it easy, you will prolong your enjoyment of the bike ownership.

    Which are the most important bits to mount "immediatly"? I'm thinking radiator guards and crash protectors from evotech.

    Not sure how much use engine covers are when I have the frame crash bobbins?

    I've gone for evotech stuff, bobbins, rad and coolant guards and tail tidy. Nice stuff with subtle branding.

    I like the Evotech stuff.

    Was looking at the R&G, but somehow they manage to cram their logo onto everything. Really don't like it.
