Good to read about MotoMan's method.
I changed my oil at 200 miles. Yeah, a bit later than I would have liked but I was enjoying the Versys too much to stop.
I will add my "method" for engine break in was some WOT runs up to about 8500 rpms then rolled the throttle off (hence, the ball slam). This was the first 50 miles. Did this in 2nd and 3rd gear. Saw 91 mph at one point, not sure if I "did the ton".
Anyway, modifications on-deck:
Moto Werk lowering kit
2017 Versys 650 LT -- Titanium
Mods: Debadged, Moto Werk lowering kit, slimmed down OEM seat
