During manufacture only the best possible materials are used and all machined parts are finished to a very high standard but it is still necessary to allow the moving parts to "BREAK-IN" before subjecting the engine to maximum stresses. The future performance and reliability of the engine depends on the care and restraint exercised during its early life. The general rules are as follows.
• Keep to these break-in engine speed limits:
Initial 800 km (500 miles): Below 6 000 r/min. Up to 1 600 km (1 000 miles): Below 9 000 r/min. Over 1 600 km (1 000 miles): Below 12 000 r/min.
• Upon reaching an odometer reading of 1 600 km (1 000 miles) you can subject the motorcycle to full throttle operation. However, do not exceed 12 000 r/min. at any time.
