Congratulations! Sounds fun!

They adjust the rev. limiter at 4500 for a security reason. I, personaly, will not want to ride a bike with a rev. limited set at under 5000 rpm. Just want to be able to get out of a situation, without a motor cutting, save my life more than one time.

A 4500 RPM limiter Nanny situation?

How odd, they didn't set it to what the engine calls for, or did they? IDK.

Are they going to raise it after break-in?
