Both of these, and the break-in procedure in the manual are essentially correct. The important thing is to be neither too easy nor too hard on the engine for the first hour. Then change the oil and ride it.

Don't forget to replace the OIL filter as well. Once you've done that, clean your air filter and ride the snot outa it!!:thumbsup:
