Did first oil service on F4RR at 355 miles- DO IT!!!

I decided to do my own at 355 miles and all I have to say to everyone running in their new bikes is to do it! At this mileage the drain plug magnet had quite a bit of fine filings in it (a black sludge). The filter is all black and the filter cap had some sludge on it as well. Took me two hours with receipts and pictures as proof. I will take it in on the next one as there are more complex bits to take care of then. While I rather give the business to the business to help keep them in business, this was a chance to get to know my bike better and have a little spending cash for that next Suomy helmet that I want, hehe. BTW even the oil filter cover facing the ground is a machined work of art with the MV logo (even though no one ever sees the part), simply beautiful and a pleasure to service.

Same experience here, did mine at 300miles. Was amazed at the black sludge/metal debris on the drain plug and filter. My 990r was not like this

Hey Fragile, as much respect as I have for you and the time you spend on the forum mate, YOU NEED TO GET OUT AND RIDE THAT FRIGGEN BIKE.

Really man, half of that sludge is probably from the engine collapsing in on itself.

More serious note though, I've posted this before and few read it, even less believe or understand it. http://www.mototuneusa.com/break_in_secrets.htm
We still have blokes show up at track days with brand new bikes, using track time to run their bikes in properly.

Now go do some riding man

And btw, where's the pictures of all this crap you're seeing.

Thanks Donsy. A really interesting read.
I've never stuck to the manufacturers run in period, but I can't say that I've given it the full berries in the first 20 miles, scary!!!
Luckily I've not yet had a bike that burns excessive oil.
My little brain is trying to compute this info.

You have to remember that every one of these motors have been run to the max at the factory Dave. It's a well documented fact, straight from the factory, right here on the forum as well as the Discovery Channel .

I`ve seen them being run flat out at the factory with my own eyes (who elses would I be using), Twice for each engine, once on the engine dyno, then again when fitted to the bike through all gears.

Yes , but with little charge and few seconds. This helps to purge air bubbles too.

If you are confortable with your bike, you are not fast enough ! John Kocinski

I took my bike to the track a few times to assist in the break in. I'm about due for first service now. After I do my first service (to make sure I have the latest updates etc etc) I'm doing all my own work from then on out.

Just did the 600mi change and also had light filings on the magnetic drain plug and sludge inside the filter cover. Oil was pretty dark, so like Fragile says "do it"!
