Let it ride
If something is going to break it will do it in the first year. I bought an 09 ZX-6R broke it in by the book, no wheelies, not racing, no burn outs, kept it stock, ran the good Motul 7100 4T oil, at 8030miles #4 con rod broke and fell in the clutch, grenaded the motor.
It was a leftover 09 i bought in 2010 so it was under the manufacturer's warranty still. Motor and tranny replaced no questions asked [I know they dumped that computer and found nothing because i had done nothing just caught a rod out of a bad batch i think]
After that I then bought an additional year on the warranty. I say if you don't have any problems the first year don't bother. They will send you a letter at the end of the manufacturer's warranty offering the extended. I have about 17K and some change on the bike in a year and 3 months.
