Question After the Break-In...

My buddy just changed out the break in oil in his 01 GSXR 600. He swears the engine sounds different, "looser" [not loser] is his discription.

Does this sound [no pun intended] correct? Do they put different oil in for a new bike?

My local dealer says Suzuki does not use a different break-in oil. BMW, on the other hand, does. My Suzuki seemed to run a bit stronger when I switched, at 1400 miles, from the factory oil to Honda GN4, but I don't think you could find any scientific data to support that.
