1. bearings HAVE changed. 30 years ago bearings weren't coated with nikasil. Now, some are. Some are even coated with teflon.

2. Gears have changed. Not only the materials they're made of, but the exactness of the machining processes to create them. Also, tooth pitch has been optimized

3. What makes you think the manufacturers don't know about it? What makes you think they care? I hate to tell you, but manufacturers don't give a whether your bike makes it to 20k miles. They assume you'll either wad it up or buy their new hotness before it gets there.

4. Have you ever broken a bike in hard? Have you ever owned a high mileage bike that wasn't? Do you have a good sense of smell? I can always tell at the racetrack the bikes that were raped off the lot, and which bikes weren't. The ones that were babied during break in are the ones on the track BURNING OIL! You can smell it when you're behind them. My track back has never seen street miles. It has been raped since it left the lot in '04. After 5 years of nothing but pure abuse, it uses half the oil of all the street bikes out at the track with half the mileage that followed the manufacturer's break in. I've personally done it both ways.....I mean I don't have 30 years of doing it both ways, but I've at least tried it both ways. I can safely say that the bikes that were broken in hard had better ring seal, and made more power than the bikes ridden easy.

When is it too late to break in your bike the "best" way?
