Hello everyone. I just purchased a new talon 1000x. Hopefully I can learn and help others learn about this new machine. Just wondering how many of y’all are sucking in those new break in smells? And how long did they last?

Haha! Yeah, don't start it until you use a good solvent cleaner and remove the oil/gum on the exhaust flashing. Watch your hands, it's easy to get cut cleaning them all up. I pulled mine out of the enclosed trailer, drove it up and back on the street, parked it in my shop, and filled the shop up with smoke.

Hi Exquaratus, welcome to the forum and hope you have rubbed off the new. Idaholover, and Scottymac are correct if you get the exhaust spotless it helps but if not driving it just a bit will get rid of the odor land smoke as they pointed out. Any way a good excuse for a long drive in your new Talon. Be safe and let us know how it turned out.
