Breaking In / Running In Engine

What's everyone's advice on breaking in / running in the F4 312?

Thanks!

Just make sure that the engines is warmed up properley then ride it like you would normally pretty much. Don't do too many high speed motorway / freeway miles though if possible as you need to keep varying the revs taking them up high then down to around 4000rpm and then high again.
The main thing to remember is whatever you do don't labour the engine in top gear at low revs.
You have to be mechanically sensitive with your bike but not so cautious that you ride around for 3 weeks never exceeding 5000rpm or 50mph!!

Hope that helps

Also big, big big thing to remember CHANGE THE OIL EARLY

I reccomend changing the oil around 60 miles and definitely before you've done 100 miles and again at 200 miles then stick to the normal oil change schedule

Instead, why don't you follow the run-in procedure in the manual? It's fairly detailed as to what you need to do. Above is in some contrast to what the manual states. Limit your rpms to 5500 for the first 300 Kms, then no more than 8000 up to 600 Kms, then no more than 10,000 at the point of the first service. Do vary the rpms, and don't lug the motor or use full throttle. I just finished my run-in today. Goes in tomorrow for RG3 slip ons plus midpipe, and race ECU!

2007 F4 1000R 1+1 Red/Silver - RG3, Race ECU, mid pipe, factory impeller, recall cam tensioner, MV alcantara/leather seats. Owned since new in 2007!!

to do it by the book is wat to hard

Just try and vary the rpms and not run them at full.These bikes are made to rev and rev they will do.

One more IMPORTANT point.
Avoid traffic jam (city ride) and do not over heat your engine. It is very easy with the 312 when it is new.

For now and the future I suggest you the Aluminium fan blades from MUZZYS.
Enjoy your bike

Don't cry, for you also the dream will become reality ! Why not ? F4 1000, Brutale S, 998S, Husqy TE510
