Oh should i use octane booster with 93 octane fuel? Thank you for the help.
NO OCTANE BOOST!!!
2 ways to break it in
1. As per OEM Manual
2. As per Mototune's article http://www.mototuneusa.com/break_in_secrets.htm
You pick your poision, other then that follow the maintenance schedule and she'll treat you well.
As for me, i just got on and rode, i didn't beat the piss out of it but i didnt exactly conform to OEM standards either. i babyed her for the first 100 miles then i rode like i normally ride (street riding) with the occasional high rpm pull. I think everyone will agree on 1 thing.... change your oil early, 100-200 miles and let the bike warm up before you ride it (at least to 120-130 degrees) other then that people opinions will differ on a break in but i dont think either way or a combination of both is wrong, just your choice.
