Hi guys, I ended up getting a new ZZR250, my dad went halves with me and I thought, for 3500 each, going new isn't such a bad deal. But all that aside.. I've clocked up about 350kms on it now, and I realise the engine is still being worn in. I have been quite a cautious and calculating rider and had a lot of fun in the mean time. However my question to you is, during the engine wearing in, however unrecommended it is, there has been a few times I have needed to run the engine above, or around 6000rpm on highways and such, I have tried to vary the RPMs as much as I can on the freeway (as I was told) without slowing down traffic or pissing off other drivers on the road.. I guess I'm asking, is the wearing in period as sensitive as everyone seems to imply? I'm keeping it within recommended RPMs where ever I can, but sometimes it's just not practical. Will this fcuk my bike in the long term 20,000kms in? Or is the engine a lot tougher than most give credit for?
