AHHH The age old question of "how to break in the motor?'" Some say drive it like you stole it!!! other say baby it. My self, I did a little of both... I did not go over 4k rpm's for the 1st 1600km or 1000 mi ;D. I got into it a couple of times, within the RPM Range, and I did change the oil after the break in. Changing the oil is necessary, but it makes me feel better.


Oh... I almost forgot Welcome... ;D

I believe the owners manual says not to exceed 4k rpms in the first 1,000 miles. It isn't just your sales agent saying that. So, I say go with the manual. There will be plenty of time to go fast later.
