Sounds normal to me Andy. If you start it and ride off within 10 seconds, with moderate throttle, it will warm up quickly. The lower the ambient the richer the mix on starting, so expect some smoke. Also shut it down while sitting on it and wait a few seconds for the oil to get into the crankcase, then lean it on to the side stand.
I bought my 2000 new, and with 53K I still think it is a new machine. Enjoy your new ride. Barnett
