Hi all. I though that I was doing the right thing by running my new Z1000 in by following the owners manual instructions (keep it under 4 thou for 800 K) But now I just came across this: http://www.mototuneusa.com/break_in_secrets.htm And Im not sure what to do as it virtually says the exact opposite of the owners manual. As well as saying you should run the engine hard this guy also advises to do an oil change after the first 20 k's !..and to use non synthetic oil for 1500 miles.. I have only just used a tank of fuel on the new bike (about 150 K's) ..and now don't know what my next move should be ..the logic of what is in this article seems to make some sense. I want to do the right thing and would appreciate any thoughts anyone has about this. Thanks Scott.
