What are your thoughts on the different approaches to break in. I’ve always followed the traditional route and broke the bike in gently. I’m hearing more and more that you should ride it like you stole it right out of the box. The other day I ran across an opinion that 80% of break in takes place in the first 20 miles and that you have to load the engine during that time frame or the rings will never seal properly. This guy had stats and pictures and years of working on race bikes and tons of convincing arguments to bolster his point. Not being much of a wrench myself, he had me convinced. He argues that it was necessary to break in gently back in the old days but new modern engines require a hard fast break in, but the dealers are still telling us to do it the old way mainly because that’s how its always been done and they don't know any better.
