i have got a new v-rod dx model and got about 650 miles on it and every since i got it it blows a little black smoke when i rev it up. is that normal? also when cold it starts and runs fine but when i first take off it ackts like it wonts to die like a carbed engine. i heard that it takes a little while for the fuel injection system to work itself out. any truth to that?

No, the bike needs to be broken in. warm it up and run it hard per say. get the first oil change done and then as it breaks in you'll notice a big change. black smoke,blue smoke and purple green and orange smoke dont really mean anything until its broken in... and again keep an eye on fluid levels also...stop worrying about those small details and run it!
