That is the general consensus, although I prefer to just throttle it up in second and shift into 3rd.

There are two trains of thought on how to "break in" a motor.

A) Take it easy. Baby the bike. Vary your engine revs and gears rather frequently. Never sit at one speed for extended periods of time. Don't abuse the engine. Stay away from redline. Gradually work your way up to higher rpm's over time.


B) Hammer it. Ride it Like you stole it right off the showroom floor.


I tend to be an "A" kinda guy. So I would not suggest workin the wheelies on a brand spanky new engine.
That's just me, and it's your money and your motorcycle.

There has been much debate on how to break in an engine. Some like to baby it, while others push it to properly seat the rings. I have not heard of any difference between the two methods as far as long term reliability.

I'm a skeptic. Very happy Love to see some video. amazon amazon


Are you standing up, feet on passenger pegs, bouncing the ever-lovin shit out of the suspension, and yanking on the bars with all your strength to get a second-gear no clutch power wheelie up to balance point????

I don't lift the front up to balance point. But at around 50 km/h (31 mph) in 2nd, the front lifts up pretty dammed easy.
I am by NO means any type of pro, I just hack away at the throttle and the smiles happen....I don't baby my bike.

Can i take it up to highway speeds (50-70mph) while breaking it in?

Yes, but "old school" thought process says you don't want to sit at any one speed/rpm range for extended period of time.

Check oil levels, warm up bike and rode it like you stole it for about 15 minutes. Let cool down, check oil, repeat. Don't bounce off rev limiter or lug bike. Decades of breaking in MY bikes this way, all run hard and strong and don't burn oil and are reliable.

I'm not a wheelie king, but my buddy can take a stock 250 and pop it up in 1st or 2nd gear at any speed and ride a balance wheelie, not just a power/speed/momentum wheelie. He can go around corners, foot out, shift. It pisses me off because, well, I can't, ha.

You might want to practice going uphill first. It's easier and safer. Also, be really careful when shifting while wheelying. If you shift too fast, the engine's momentum might jerk the bike as you let the clutch out, possibly resulting on you landing on your ass.
