breaking in your 1098

I owned 3 zx10's (crashed 2) 1 i did by the book (boooooring), 1 on a dyno powerbank and 1 broke in on the road, but HARD for a 200 km and did a trackday immidiatly after that.

How are you gonna break in your 1098? I'll do it HARD!

Tough one. Either ride it like it's stolen or by the manual. Going to be a game time decision.

300km I'll take it easy and do it in 3 different days.

After that I'm riding it hard.

I am going to break it in hard, two diffrent schools of thoughts but I have always gotten better dyno results from doing it this way. Check out the link. http://www.mototuneusa.com/break_in_secrets.htm

The old school method used by Eraldo Ferrachi and Rob Muzzy was to let the engine rev freely (even to red line), but to be very, very wary of heavy loads for the first few hundred miles.
Translated, that means don't lug around in high gears at low speed, avoid prolonged wide open throttle, and especially heavy back torque a.k.a engine braking.

If you want to ride it at full potential asap, just go flirt with it like a new girlfriend the first weekend you have it. Wind her up, but don't drive it home just yet. After four or five days of that, she'll... I mean it... will be ready for a good pounding. What was I talking about again... oh yeah! motorcycles....

Engine break-in

I generally break-in all my bikes on a curvy road with hills. I try not to go over 5k for the first hundred miles and I gradually increase the revs up to about 3/4 of red line constantly varrying the rpm - never constantly staying on one rpm. I change the oil at 300 miles and again at 1000 miles then I 'get after it'! Similar to Eraldo's suggestion but with two oil changes to get any engine filings out of the engine.

That is why i singed up. LOL iam scared I payed 27,780.07 american for my Tricolor at Chicago Cycle Center. I am bringing it back home to Clearwater FL. Iam just not sure how to go about it. I used to have 01 R1 OMG what a lemon that one was bad luck. I also had a zx10r 04 no problems excepet for the radiator falling off from to many hard wheelies. I plan to keep this bike planted and see how this go, actually i never rode a ducati and bought this one just by what people had to say about it.

Just to add to this, I hear heat cycles are good as well. Get out ride it relatively gently then park it, let it cool completely, and repeat... Who knows.
