hello guy's, I'm new to the forum but have been riding for 4 years.
i've always owned used bikes. so i never had to worry about break-in.

this will be my first new bike.

previously owed suzuki katana 750 then a vtr 1000

i'm now getting the2004 r1 picking it up tomorrow.(silver) I read how break in effects end horse power .

i'm a car mechanic and know all about cars but bikes are different. i know the owners manual tells you one way but is there a better way :eek:

Here is the last lengthy thread we had on this.

For the 'O4... I'm doing the Mototune's way... :cool:

Btw, this is the first time that I'm not following the manual...
