    Picked up a 2020 Vitpilen. Closing in on 500 miles. Fun little bike. But the break in period limiters are very annoying and are going to get someone hurt. Anyways does anyone know if the limiters turn off when you hit 500 miles or do you have to take it in to have the shop to turn them off?

    Since the Vitpilen has the same engine as my KTM390, assuming that you have a 410 model, perhaps it will fix itself once you get to a particular mileage. What happened with my bike is that the break-in service is scheduled at 620 miles on the KTM390. I took my bike into the dealer for its $650! initial servicing at 600 miles. Interestingly, the technician could not get the 6K rpm redline raised even after downloading the latest KTM ECU program. However, as soon as I hit 620 miles on the clock, as I was riding home from the shop the redline suddenly jumped from 6K to 10K rpm. Maybe that will happen to you too.

    BTW, I just happened to see a Vitpilen 701 today and took some photos of the bike. Looks nice, but it needs a larger fuel tank.
