    Hi Peter:

    I’m following your “Adventures” with your GTV with interest as my own GTV is to be delivered May13, 2013. I noticed that your first variator belt change was at 4710 KM. That seems rather few miles per belt??

    I suppose the owner’s manual will discuss this but I’m curious…what procedure did you follow during the break-in period?

    Keep your messages coming. We enjoy. Russ

      The bike was purchased used and was a 2010. It also had a rattling noise that I suspected was a clip on the variator. Additionally, the bike shaked at idle. I had no idea what those first 4500 km were like. So I changed everything. For 100.00 the difference was amazing. No more rattle, no more vibrations or shaking and now I know what condition the belt is in and will change it in 10000 kilometers.

      Ah yes, the crazy break in. Do not ride at a constant speed for the first 5000 kilometers (3000 miles). That was a pain since all my riding is on the country roads and highway. I could not wait until that was over. It was so nice afterwards to just cruise at a setbspeed.
