I must say there has been a bit of "spirited chat" concerning your posts. Glad to see you picked the WR, was some of your frustration related to the extended wait, as mine was? There is a paragraph of info re break-in in the manual. Initially mine seemed to run exceedingly hot, but has improved with a little time on it.the wr s are jetted very lean(see mult. post on sight) and run hot, so i would not do break in on long hard ride. You are going to love the bike though

My WR450F will be here Friday. I am planning a tough 26 mile single track ride on Saturday. Is it a good idea to break in a new WR450 on a ride this tough?
Do like I did.... Do some hot laps around the block a few times then..... rip it up on the trail......

Based on that, I would not hesitate to run it through a "tough 26 mile single track ride" on the same day or even one of our typical 40-60 mile single track rides or even an 85+ mile enduro. These are racing bikes.
In case you've not seen one of the Yamaha user's manuals yet, they are excellent and provide very detailed info on all aspects of operation, maintenace and repair. I pretty much live by it.

I'm not going to post my thoughts on break in proceedures. I R and Ingineer and don't want to catch any crap.
