Yes, that break in sucks big time.
Picked up my grey 2013 yesterday . Only one colour in Canada, 12's are all gone. Put on 60 miles varying 3 to 4,000 rpm. Brutal. Dropped in to me dealer to pick up my crash bars and moaned about it. H e says, don't do it, ride it normally, Do you drive a new car that way? Another 60 mile ride in the evening, 4 to 5,000 rpm range, much better.
Changed the oil today. Will probably keep the revs below 6,000 for the break in period.
Cheers and enjoy your ride.
