No not necessary at all, the only thing you have to worry about is taking corners for the first 50-100 miles to scuff the sides, no need to scuff the middle of the tire with a burnout, just riding it down the street a few miles is good enough.

ok i gotta ask, when you say go down in teeth I take it you referring to the sprocket, does this mean a new sprocket or is it more of an adjustment. i have an understanding, to an extent, of what the change does but wasn't sure about how it's done.

Yes, replacing one sprocket with a sprocket of another size, Down in the front and up in the rear =more low end. Up in the front, down in the rear =more top end.
