Thankyou,


hopefully everyone will fully read this before they even sit on their new motorcycle, going by other forums ive got a feeling we'll be constantly referring people to this thread every day

I blame the Internet.

I was happy to see the first valve check is at 26,600 miles, same as on the FZ07.

Yes Yamaha quality, 42,000km checks and no initial 1000km inspection.


Offset with what seems like an outrageous 1000km/7000rpm, 1600km/8400rpm initial period.which seems strange for a 2015 bike, wont be needing that.
Maybe the Canadian market prints that for liability reasons ?

I blame the Internet.

I always do a hard break-in, so I will take it to redline the first day several times. Still, if someone wanted to go by the book, 7000 in 6th gear might be 60 mph or so, which isn't ridiculous.

That brings up an interesting question. What would you guys break-in your new R3 like? By the book, a mix, or hard?
