...more seriously though.
I would like to have data before not following the manual that was written by the company that made the machine. In this case, there is precious little data to allow for decisions about break-in methods.
When I talk about data I mean numbers and graphs and things. In this case perhaps statistics on engine failures due to "blow-by" that we solved with a different break-in method. I am certain that this data will not be forthcoming.
On the other hand, some modifications actually come with data. For example watt-man can show you precisely what the Thermo-Bob will do to your Versys. Of course, there is no data to support whether this change is a good thing or a bad thing for the life or your machine, but I do know that my Versys will actually warm up when I ride in freezing temperatures.
