I ran my engine in totally by the book, changed oil about 600 and again about 1500. I now have over 23k miles on it and now run the twisties between 8000rpm and 9000rpm.
I don't use a drop of oil between changes (about every 3000 miles) and still on original chain and sprockets and I thrash this machine--------------what a bike. I run with liter bikes and even with my dubious riding skills I can easily keep up, unless we get long straight aways-in the twisties I'm all over them.
Just to bring it back on thread, IMHO, take it easy for the a couple of thousand, then let it rip. I reckon I'll get 50-60k miles before I need look at a valve adjustment, plugs were perfect at 18k and even if I don't keep the bike that long, the engine would be good to 100k miles.
