Yeah, it's good to gradually increase your maximum rpm and to accelerate across the rev range, gradually increasing throttle opening and engine load. Rings break in better with the engine under load under acceleration. Engine braking helps too. Avoid sustained rpm and low loads, but don't lug it at a too low rpm. A swift break-in is important to prevent glazing the cylinders, causing blowby and long term problems... I did a good gradual break-in and was accelerating up to redline in 2nd and 3rd gear by 100 miles, and changed the oil at the end of the first day at 140 miles.
