It's not too late. The sooner, the better. You can start gradually increasing your loads (throttle) and rpm's right away... After a full warm up, accelerate through low gears at 3/4 throttle from 40% to 80% max rpm (4000-8000 rpm), upshift a gear and engine-brake a few times. Ride normally for a few miles, then accelerate at full throttle from 30% to 100% max rpm (3000-10000+ rpm), upshift a couple gears to engine-brake a few times. Ride normally for a few miles, then give it a good ride and change the oil and filter at the end the day.
I did the break-in progressively, varying speeds and loads often, a few 4000-6000 rpm runs, after a while 4000-8000 rpm runs, then by 100 miles I was doing a few 3000-10500 rpm runs in 2nd and 3rd gears. I expected to just run it up to 10000 but it pulls real strong right up to redline in second gear. I changed the oil at the end of the first day at 140 miles.
