I guess all you guys drive the speed limit too since we all know that's what the book says<img src=http://www.ezboard.com/intl/aenglish/images/emoticons/eyes.gif ALT=":rolleyes"> :
Call me a fool if you want but I've broke in more than 20 new bikes over the last 33 years and I've done it basically the same way every time and have never had a break in related failure.
First ride - no more than a couple of miles - as soon as it gets to operating temp stop and let it cool down (at least 1 to 2 hours). Second ride, get it up to operating temp and run it 10 to 20 miles continiously varing the speed, never letting it get hot, and never exceeding 4K RPM. Let it cool down. Do this repeatedly adding a few miles each time till you have about 100 miles on it. Then you can gently but quickly run it to 6K RPM and back down a few of times till you have about 500 miles on it, gradually increasing to 8K RPM. The more heat cycles you can get the better.
I strongly belive that this properly seats the rings, prohibits any carbon build up in the head or glaze on the cyclinder walls. After 500 miles change the oid and filter. You can now make a couple of easy but quick runs to red line. Don't do any top speed runs or hard drag racing till you got a 1000 miles on it and it is broke in.
I broke my 12 in that way driving it 500 miles from Alamogorodo where I bought it to my house, going through the mountains to keep it exciting and to vary the speed. I stopped in Santa Fe about half way to spend the night (it takes a long time if you are heat cycling the engine right).
I now have 34,000 miles on the bike and have not had any problem except for the gas tank vent leak that they did a recall for. Valves are still in adjustment and it will absollutely eat my buddys busa every time<img src=http://www.ezboard.com/intl/aenglish/images/emoticons/smile.gif ALT=":)">
By the way, these bikes are meant to be ridden... It runs better all the time and the shit eaten grin just keeps getting bigger.
Now do it how ever you want... I'm not offering a guarantee but rather just telling you what I'd do <img src=http://www.ezboard.com/intl/aenglish/images/emoticons/smile.gif ALT=":)">
