Hi guys,

I have bought a brand new silver R1 '03. This is my first new bike. Can you guys tell me how to drive in my bike? There are different story's.

The motorshop tels me to drive at variable RPM's an to come back after 1000 km (600 mile) for the oil and oil filter.

I also found this at forum in Holland.

Its a flip of a coin,really;

Some will say go with what you"ve found because they had great results,other will stick to Yamaha"s way.

The best way would be to bring the engine to operating temperature (around 170) 4-6 times,but shut the engine down and let it cool down between each times.

Then ride the tits off it.
