Anyone know what Yamaha is recommending on breaking this monster in?

:lol This is a classic debate... Everyone is going to have a different method and someone that tries to prove a method wrong always has been building engines for decades with X amount of certifications and yadda yadda. I've always been told to break it in the way you plan on riding it. Just do what you want. Change the oil FREQUENTLY when breaking it in. That's all I'd say.

There may be a right and wrong way. Until I see a reason to believe otherwise I'll continue to break my engines in the way I plan on using them (Like an asshole)
