I used it - bike runs great. Of course, I don't have an identical V to compare to, so I can't state "scientifically" that it worked or is any better than the factory break in. But what he says seems to make sense. I'm happy with the results.
Some statements that I can make:
Definitely change the oil after the first 100-150 miles. I did see quite a few sparkly metal bits in mine when I changed at 150 miles, noticed a few bits at the 300 mile change and virtually nothing at 750 mile change. Oil was still somewhat amber colored - so that would seem to say that the combustion chambers have sealed pretty tight and not a lot of blow-by getting into the oil.
Don't use synthetic. Through the process of selling an old car and buying a new one, I would up with a quart of synthetic oil that was the wrong weight for any car I owned, but the right weight for a new lawnmower I bought. So I thought "What the heck...I know some people say don't break in on synthetic, but the FAQ of most synthetic oil mfr's say it is OK" So I broke the mower in with the full synth. oil. Now every time I start it up, it smokes like burning coal for a minute or so...I don't think the rings ever sealed.
Just my .02
