That's a argument that been done so many time over the internet lol. Some people believe the manufacture should follow their break end period because it works and some believes there is no need for break end period because the manufacture already ran test on each and every bike. Personally, just ride it like you would normally ride it and there wouldn't be any problem.

Its a far too hot a potato to recommend what others should do for legal reasons, and some say you should run it in like Grandpa's Oldsmobile in 1950.


But mine's going to be ridden hard to redline, through all gears and speeds, allowed to fully cool down at least 4 times, ridden with no steady throttle openings ,
Then at 100km drop the oil and filter.(second day) which is good chance to get familiar with the bike, lube cables, pivot points etc, and set everything up to personal preference.


Then its safe to ride without worry till the first dealer service at 1000km where any teething problems can be addressed.


Proved it to myself on the last bike that it performed better being ridden exactly the same as its future use dictates.
Its a Yamaha, its designed to run like a tuned instrument

I blame the Internet.

I've been enjoying my factory service manual since 2 weeks before I got my bike (bought my factory oil filter for my 1st change too.Got 768 miles on it now). It seems as good as all the factory service manuals I'm used to. I've worked at 2 local bike dealerships as a srvc tech, and the only discrepancies I've found are mis-spell typos...

Service Manual

I'm asking about the service manual, not the owner's manual. Has anybody found one?

Ordered mine from my dealership 3 weeks before I got my bike. It came in the next week, so I had 2 weeks to browse through it before actually taking delivery of my bike. Yamaha factory part number is LIT-11616-28-57
