Break-in? who cares!

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=S13NqcED5Ms

tbh I'm not sure if it's called "break-in" the first period when you don't go way high on rpm, but you'll be the judge

Once you go Drac, you can't go back!

After clicking on the you tube link, scroll down 5 videos. There is a white and silver with a black frame f3. It looks pretty damn good in this color combo. Wonder why they didn't run this in production.

That will not do anything bad to the motor, if you keep doing in, that might be a different story.

I'm Pretty sure ALL the Bikes get a good Romp thru the gears on Stationary rollers, straight after Assembly.
I'm not sure what you saw (heard?) as being a problem, as long as there is some heat in the motor.
the Motors all ready been run-in a bit before it ever gets to the dealer.

Yes I understand the same thing but I am never sure of what is actually the right thing to do with a new bike, so I read the manual & follow its recommendations religiously then if there's a problem I can flick it back to the dealer with a clear conscience.

Any of the F3 owners able to tell us what the manual directs for the run in period?

True that, however on the rollers the engine is under load.....

I can't see how revving a new bike a couple of times when new is so bad, if you stood there and revved it to get some red pipes going I'd say you were an idiot for sure. But I think if a new bike can't at least be revved once or twice then they can keep it.
I know running a bike under load is better than idling or revving while not under load etc.
And I have nothing against running a bike in too, but I do believe you need to give it a bit of stick now and again, for short bursts at least, for various reasons.

I think there's another post that has this information, but this is out of the User's Manual:

0-500km 5500-6000rpm Max
500-1000km 8000-9000rpm Max
1000-2500km 11000 Max
