Correct way to break in an engine?

I tried doing a search, I dont know how much of a on-going topic this is.

Im sure alot of yall have seen that website that says when you break in the motor, hammer the out of it, it makes it seat better, and perform better. If this is true, exactally how does it work, and what are yall's opinions on doing that?

i say break it in quick,,, not reving the out of it,, but slowly reaching the redline through each gear,,, then let it rev back down,,,, i do this on the first day i buy the bike.. then i change the oil,, ride it normally, and change again like at 500 or so, oil changes are easy and i like to keep fresh oil in a new bike

The best advice I would give you is if you bought it brand new the salesman should have told you to take it easy ( I forgot on what not to exceed on your RPM's I think it's like 7g's or something ) for the first 500 miles. Get an oil change immediately after 500 miles, then act a plum fool. Regardless if it's brand new you have a warrenty, but why go through those changes?

when i got mine. i dumped the oil first, put some non synthetic in it , cuz i didnt know what came in it, and i rode it hard for 200 miles, like it was stolen, everybody said i was gonna ruin it, but ive always done my bikes like that, its a superstrong motor, burns absolutely zero oil, and zero oil fouling ----oh yea i do regular compression checks, it has 10469 miles and all four cylinders are within 1/4 psi of eachother and they are about 1/2 psi short of what thay were new on psi....all four cyclinders have less than 2 percent leakdown---i didnt write comp measurement down its just what i remember from when i did the compression test.....the run it hard method has never let me down

I broke my bike in like my cars. I drive normally for about 50 miles, then I'll get on it pretty good through a few gears. Then ride normal again. Spirited riding till I hit 500 miles, change the oil and let her rip. It's very important to change your oil the very first time, for obvious break in reasons.

My Cobra has 28,000 miles on it. A year and a half ago, I dyno'd the car @ 533hp/538trq in 50deg weather. I dyno'd again a couple months ago, and it made 512hp in 96deg. weather. 20hp loss in 40+deg hotter weather isn't bad IMO. Also in that year, I sprayed, powershfited and went WOT on that car daily. Motor hums perfectly, interior is still together and everything is A-OK.

Anyway, I don't recommend babying it for the break in period. Show that thing who's daddy.
