Just remember its NOT just the engine that need to "bed in" brakes & tyres also need to be treated with "consideration" & even the seat !!! Done properly it will pay dividends in the longer term....be a bit patient & don't expect it to perform "at its best" until AT LEAST the bikes 1st service is done ;)

Thank you for your advise will certainly be taking things carefully until first service did you keep yours under 6k revs until services

I managed to keep to under 6000 rpm..in 6th gear that's over 80mph ! More important is DO NOT let the engine labour, ie have in too high a gear with low revs or even too many revs in a low gear ! You will get to know what feels comfortable ! ;)

Yeah try to keep it within 6000 rpm in the first 600 miles and the occasional high rev wont kill it if it's just a short overtake or something.

I did it by the book (& instructions from the dealer) That was why I didn't buy the demo, I wanted to know how the bike was treated right from the start. You can guarantee that people riding the demo wouldn't pussy foot around just because the bike's not run in.
