For a 450 a good break in perdiod would be 1 to 2 tanks worth of riding it easy, no hitting the rev limiter, no hard pulls, just take it easy, this doesn't mean to ride it like an old lady, just don't abuse it for this period, after this, change the oil and filter and you are ready to abuse it!!! :applause: :bonk:
