mmmmm your speaking of a crated bike correct, but yea it comes nearly 90% assembled so you may have to install mirrors, maybe front wheel, windscreen, check battery, fluids etc.

How come you guys always give the new guy a hard time. Wind sheild wipers. Come on. You guys are forgetting to tell him to check the fan belt. You don't want him to over heat his new 10.

You might also have to torque the glow-plugs. Sometimes when you un-crate a new motorcycle, they tend to spin off during shipping. Just to be safe, I set the varible sequence meters to about 4db, so that when you install the high-voltage trippler, you'll be able to set your suspension in accordance to your own body-weight.
The dealer will perform all of these things for you, if you let them take it out of the crate. But if you want to do it yourself, you'll have to fill the crankcase with oil and flip-open the hydraulic spindle asist valve. Good luck, man.
