I just purchased a new 08 R1 yesterday and have heard many different opinions on how to break in a new engine. The manual says not to exceed over 6900rpms until 1k and then staying away from 8300rpms until 1600kms. Some people are suggesting to ride it up a bit into 10-12 every so often.
My safe bet is to stick to the manual, however, there have been differing opinions that riding the bike in the manner of what the manual suggests could potentially f-up my bike should i decide to crack it open in the high RPM's later on.
So...what's your take into this matter????
