    No doubt the dealer will tell me on thurs when I go to pick my brand new baby up, but what rules should you *try* and stick to on picking a brand new VXR up??

    Take it easy for the first 600... Still have fun but dont redline every gear and everywhere... be sensible and it will be fine.

    I say change the oil after about 1,000 as the engine will have bedded in and to get rid of all the swarf in it.

        I asked my dealer about me changing oil before my first checkup at 7500 km and he recommended that I waited for the checkup.
