short answer is yes.
long answer is depends on how tight your dealer is!

I only got a 13t . no 14.

friend picked his new bike up from same dealer and got both ffs.

If it was mine i'd do an oil n filter (and screens if it has any) change after an hour or so.... I'd find what oil is used from the factory and use a similar oil, it might be a running in oil.

Not sure about the sprockets but you should have a sticker for your forehead with the bike saying “MUG, I just paid £10k for this bike” :ROFLMAO:

probably paid about £7500 as it’s a 2020 and they reduced them because nobody wants a 4 stroke 🤣🤣🤣

Its a motorex running in oil. I would dump it after an hours running in, then use a semi synth for another couple if hours then onto fully synth.

On a refreshed 4t motor l used to do an hour on mineral, an hour on semi, an hour on fully then change it. After that every 15 hrs max. You get a load of junk in the first few changes.

My 2015 500 EXC 6 days and my current 2018 500 EXC came with the 14 tooth cog installed and the 13 tooth in the packed items box.

Even David Knight couldn’t handle that bike
was that 2011?
i watched him ride at the Portuguese GP around then
he would've been much faster on his 2007 525
but it's 2020...

on the MAP button on the combination switch '1' is Standard
'2' is Advanced
is '2' the softer mapping?

cheers

just found it in the manual
it's called MAP 2 'direct response'
MAP 1 is fast enough!
wonder if it comes with a flashing blue light as well...

I’m sure there is a way that you can see blue flashing lights 🤣🤣

I cannot really tell the difference on my FE350, both seem bloody quick, and the Traction Control does not seem to do anything either, I think they just operate LED's on the bars and impress those who paid extra for these features ;-)

My 690 had three layers but the soft and medium were useless for low speed manouvering and kept stalling so I left on on ‘mental’ and controlled it with the throttle like normal people do.

'mental' mode makes you focus
and smile when you get it right
