Break in?

If i break the rpm limit suggested in the manual for the break in time of my new bike will it damage it? Even if it is only occasional?

nope.
Actually, there are alot of people who say to run it hard from the beginning.

Did you actually go over, or you are looking ahead knowing you can't control yourself for 500 miles?

I'm a believer that the first 50 miles are the most cruicial. My break in includes runs at 1/4throttle, all the way to redline, then engine braking back down to almost idle. After the first ride, change the oil and filter, it will be full of metal shavings

Yes i actually have already went over the recommended rpm's, and also didnt want to have to control myself unless it was absolutely necessary. Vash i should change my oil after mr first drive??? Or how many miles?

I always change the oil after the first ride thats long enough to fully warm up the engine.. I know its not in the manual, and well, it might be a waste of money, but its not going to hurt. I do know there are LOTS of metal shavings in the oil after the first 10-15miles...

suggestion:

1.) Spend the money and break it in on the dyno.

Have you ever seen two identical bikes, and one just runs like shit and does not perform to the standard? improper breakin is probably what caused it.

break it in on the dyno. or if you do it, dump the oil immediately. Run another 50-100 miles, dump it,

dump again.

get those shavings out.
