break in secrets

not sure if its a repost, but imo its worth a repost if it is:

http://www.mototuneusa.com/break_in_secrets.htm

what do yall think? some pretty contraversial stuff there, but from what i do know about engines, the theory of fast break in makes ALOT of sense! discuss:

I've heard that before from a number of people... at the very least, its the fun way to do it!

The first oil change at 20 miles seems really early... but he seems to know his t! I think I will follow that advise on the next bike (the oil change part, I rode the outta my bike the first day).

That is the break-in method I used on my new R6. Bike runs like a champ.

I changed the oil after 60 miles on my Aprilia as a result of reading this web site and I'm glad I did. I was able to see what was in the oil! Since the oil hadn't been turned black yet I was able to see all the metal particles in it from the first 60 miles! It was crazy, no way would I want to pump that through my engine for 600 or 1000 miles. I changed the oil in my new car after 100 miles too.

I'm sold on this method.
