Hello all,

Just put a down-payment on brand new (leftover) 2017 Ninja 650 ABS in Pearl Blizzard White. Gotta drive over 400 miles to get it, but that's the one I want. I could only find 3 on the east coast. On one, I was a day too late, another the guy wouldn't budge on price, and finally was able to work a deal on the 3rd.

Anyone have any experience or advice on buying a 2-year old new/leftover bike? They assure me that they will change fluids and prep bike appropriately, but I'm a little nervous.

Also, it's been a while since I've owned a bike. What are the break-in recommendations on a bike like this?

Thanks!

Welcome to the forum! The 650 is a great little bike. I have a '15.

The break in period on the '17 is 1k miles. Max RPM 4k in first 500 miles. Max rpm 6k first 1k miles. After the first 1k miles, do your initial maintenance service.
