What Alan said is probably better, but I dont think there is a need for it.

I wont be able to ride mine on the street b/c it will have a full slider and a small fuel cell.
For your bike or a race motor, I usually just heat cycle them 3 times, change the oil/filter. Then get them on the dyno. Put some miles on them on the dyno varying the load, (usually mapping the part throttle stuff).... Then make some moderate pulls, say up to 9k to help seat the rings, atleast run a gallon of fuel through it. Then I dump the oil/filter again, put in fresh Dino oil(not synthetic). Start the bike and warm it back up to get the oil temps up....then start making the 100% dyno pulls and keeping a close eye on AFR during to pull, NEVER letting it go leaner then 13.0. After all of the pulls it will take to get the most power out of it and get the AFR in the mid-high 12 range, the rings and bearings should be plenty broken in.

This is exactly how we did my 657hp pump gas big block. It has over 6000 miles on it now and still has 200-210psi in each hole. I haven't leak down tested it yet tho...

My buddy followed the manufacturer's recommendations and I followed the information within the following link. Both new, all stock R1's on the same dyno, on the same day and I had 3 more peak hp than he did.

The link talks about not using heat cycles, not using synthetic oil until you have it completely broken in, and some other interesting break-in information:

We all know you were serious. Who cares if it needs a rebuild after only a few passes, your mechanic is cheap lol.

Wow, you guys actually got that thing back together?
Last time time I saw that thing, it was just a shell, with a load of wires hanging out of it, in every direction.
Big props to you both!

OK. Did some shake down and tuning runs. The auto tuner smoothed out a lot of hiccups. It's running pretty strong now. I just finished pulling all the plastic back off to check for leaks and change the oil. I pressure washed the chain and tried to bleed the rear brake. No go on the rear brake. It still has air in the line. The quick shifter is still not working. It's plugged in, so I'm not sure what the problem is. Maybe tomorrow I will look into that. I may try a ride tomorrow.

What was the coolant leak ?

Ill hit you up around 11 ish. I texted Joe about a ride, he said 11a was too early.... Maybe an after lunch ride...?

We could go to the MH bbq but apparently there is a "list" you have to be on so.....

That would be a good ride to put some freeway miles on your bike though...

The leak was on a hose I installed. It was in no way related to Alan's workmanship.

Now get your up and meet us all at Barnes & Nobles on Bay Area/45 at 9:30 and we'll get to the BBQ. Sign up on the master list so Godzuki can attempt to get you a plate.
