    So I picked up my brand new 2020 790 Adventure last Tuesday, and I've already got 550 miles on it (honestly a little disappointed in myself that I didn't crack 600 this weekend). Anyways, as a motorcycle tech myself, I have no intentions of paying the dealership to do maintenance on my bike. However I'm wondering if there is a programming update that the dealership does at the initial break-in service that unlocks stuff in the engine management software. Does anyone know if it's necessary for the dealer to reprogram the bike at the 600 mile service?

    Where are you located? Interested in where this delivery of the 2020 R happened

    Finally made it to Fruita!
    There does not seem to be any issues with doing the service yourself. I did the same thing, and my dealer was fine with that. The low rpm warning will disappear on it's own after the 600 mile mark.

    The bike unlocks the rev limiter menu at 600 miles by itself. You can reset the mileage for next service with a secret handshake (warning: only once in a while!).

    However, visit your official dealer once in a while: there are software updates from time to time.

    Just a note. There is no actual rev limiter, it's just a warning light that starts flashing when you exceed the max recommended break-in RPM.

    I'm in Socal, but mine isn't an R, I got an S. The only thing I wanted from the R model was the better suspension, but I figured I could do some aftermarket upgrades if the OEM stiff was too terrible.

    Ok perfect, thanks guys. I hate being dependent on dealerships.

    The only thing I would say that is worth bringing it to the dealer for is the adjustment to the QS which is supposed to be part of the first service. Of course,my dealer didn’t do it so a lot of good that did me...

    I don't know, I bring the bike to my dealer for service. But people using the hidden menu reported issues changing things too often. I don't remember the details, hopefully someone does (and if you do, tell me I'll update the FAQ)

    Mine could use some adjustment as it takes more lever travel to initiate the shift than it did when it was new
