Re: Ferries are filling up fast !!!

KTM 640 LC4 running in procedure

Hi, can anyone recall the running in procedure for the LC4 640? I should get it back next week after a rebuild and i need to plan the running in before my first group of bikers arrive for a tour starting on the 19th Sept. I haven't run in a new or rebuilt bike engine since the 90's
