Well done. They are fun bikes to ride. Nimble but still stable.
Throw the running in recommendations out the window. They are a copy and paste repeat of the 650 and 1000 instructions, and are not possible with a bike that needs to rev a little. You will end up lugging the bike which is much worse for it.
I always use part throttle and vary the throttle and engine speed. Some will say that you should ride it like you stole it, and although I do not support that theory it is still better than lugging the motor. Just don't rev it out yet and do not use full throttle.
BTW, at the final factory checkpoint your motor was tested to the red line.
