with new bikes, i tend to change the oil after the second tank, then after the fourth tank, then not for a while. i just like to make sure twice that everything is "working". youre not supposed to go full throttle for a while, i think its something like 8-12 hours. as you are riding, vary the throttle, dont just gun it or just sit at 2 mph. everything has to have a chance to heat up and cool off together.

that may be a good start. good luck getting the bike!

What Aproy does is what I do. 2 tanks and not a lot of high RPM usage untill that first oil change. Then I start to get on it after I check everything over.
People don't talk much about watching you machine, looking it over and getting to know it. I'd pay close attention to how it runs so you know what to do to make it right later on.
Make sure ethings are tight. Look at your plug to learn what it looks like from the factory. (read it)
Stuff like that. (take it apart to see how it works) :D

Suzuki recomends 10 hours under half throttle. Its rally hard to do this but the easiest way is to set the throttle limiter to 1/2 and don't let it idle for a long time cuz u'll ruin the rockers. And don't hold a constant RPM too.

thats a good start. i would just take it to the dealer for the first check-up, then you can do the rest yourself.

Well heres what I would do, Ride it around for ten minutes keeping different rpm's but dont lug it in two high or two low of a gear and try to vary the rpms but dont go past 1/2 do this for 10 minutes let it cool, then 20, then 30, ride it after that but dont go past 3/4 on the throttle until you get a good 10 hours on it, Then change the oil and the filter and your off at the 20 hour mark you should get your valves checked and have fun and enjoy your new ride. :D
