Get the oil moving around and the parts warmed so there is no shock. Not to mention wet clutch issues.

I "took it easy" for the first 450 miles, then rode it like how i wanted to ride it. Worked good for me. The odds are, you probably not going to mess the bike up if you ride the out of it right off the bat. But i'd rather be safe than sorry and has worked good for me.

From what I understand, you won't know how an improper breakin affects your bike for quite a while. Bike will run fine for a long time but a properly broken bike will last longer. If you are like me and buy a new bike every year then who gives a , let someone else deal with the problems. The Husky I just got is the only one I've ever actually somewhat followed instructions for because I here they can up early on if you don't do it right.

Kawasaki rides the bike about 30 feet to a dyno and redlines it as it comes off the assembly line to make sure everything is fine. It's ok to go above a few thousand RPMs.

A dyno will tell you pretty quickly whether a bike was broken in properly. , a few trackdays will as well. The guys with ~ 1 year old bikes that use enough oil that you can smell it when you're behind them..................they followed the manual.

When I bought a Victory Vegas I broke it in as per the manual. 6 months later I went to a demo day and rode 5 different bikes (Victory uses the same engine in most models), all were broken in by people doing demos. All five of them had noticeably stronger engines. I usually sell my bike after 1 or 2 years like yourself.

I call BS. Like I said, I broke mine in at the 1/4 mile. I had about 200 easy miles on it after 2 days. Joebusa babied his. We are within 1 hp of each other with only the pipe being different.

You can call bs all you want. It still will not change the fact that my engine was weaker than the five I test road.

This test was performed on the same dyno, fuel, tuner, tires, filter, tire pressure, and same day. You cant much closer to a scientific study. Seat of the pants dyno seems a little more iffy to me. LOL

Cycleworld, or Motorcyclist Magazine..cant remember,

anyways they got a 900RR Honda brand new, then took it to the track for a 24 hour straight up torture endurance. WFO. (it may have been more than just 24..)

After it was all said and done, they tore it down, and inspected everything. I forgot the exact results, but it was very impressive, and there was no wear/tear taking it straight from dealership to track, and logged a few thousand miles on it.

Sure there is an E-version of that article somewhere. but then again, maybe they were doing a very expensive honda advertizement. (93-96, one of those years.)

I've seen bikes and cars w damages from abusive riders off the showroom floor.

Its not common but it does happen. Spun bearings or broken rings causing a rough idle/oil consumption. Often overlooked by most customers until it gets severe a few thousand miles down the road.

I'd think either one of those, especially a spun bearing, would be noticeable immediately.
