I have heard a couple of ways to break in a new bike. Drive it like you would always drive it. Or half throttle for first tank of gas. After ten hours: Change the oil and check valve clearances, tighten chain, clean air filter. I was wondering how you guys did your break in period?

I broke mine in like I stole it, lol. I dont recommend it unless you wanna go really fast. J/K, theres so any opinions about it that prolly why noones posting. I would just go by manufaturers recomendations.

he only reason I break mine in hard is casue it just makes sence but not everyone will agree.

I rode mine into a 6ft deep puddle 20min after getting it. Completely submerged. 9 oil changes later, 2 races it's perfectly fine.

stay off the rev limiter and give it some good heat cycles. Hot enough for the fan to come on and then let it sit for a couple hours. I change the oil filter and added a little oil at about 5hrs and then will do a complete oil change with a stainless oil filter at 10 hrs.
