So I noticed the throttle limiter screw was set to about 1/8 " from the dealer. I read somewhere in the owners manual that " performance may not reach maximum until break in complete" or something to that effect.
I'm not yet at the 10 hr mark.
Wondering if they pull the limiter screw out as part of the 10 hr service to reinforce that statement...
What do you all think??

The moment you signed over the check to purchase the machine, you could of taken the screw out. Don't worry, take it off and let her rip. Won't effect your warranty at all.

That limiter screw isn't there so the cable doesn't snap? Shouldn't it be set so the throttle opens completely but doesn't allow stress on the cable?

I picked mine up with the screw back all the way off yet its still there doing nothing. Full throttle it doesnt hit the screw. For break in ive always been told treat it like you would after its broken in and I have yet to have any issues.

Yah I'm not worried about removing it or backing it out, and the throttle will still stop with the screw removed. Just wondering if they leave it partially out at the PDI stage on purpose, and remove it at the 10 hr service.

I set my screw so it stops the throttle at full throttle. That way I can't put stress on the cable if I push too hard.
