This has been my dream bike since they first came out. Rest assured I am doing everything I can to ensure the bike last as long as I waited. So no I didnt break it in like him, only a few blips past 7k so far. It is very tempting though.

So I should just use regular oil until the other 400 to my 1000, then switch it to synthetic and ride it like a raped ape. Right?

Personally I would have broke it in like Mototuneusa suggests. His way is not beating on the bike...yet a better way to get the rings to seat...for less blow-by and longer life of the motor.

Some suggest to wait till about 1500 miles to use synthetic oil...some people like a synthetic blend. I myself use a synthetic blend in the G1k (Golden Spectro 10-40) and in the FZ1 I use Amsoil synthetic 10-40...IMO there is no better synthetic oil on the market than Amsoil.

I remember a Sport Rider oil comparison test last year that came up with the same conclusion.

I totally agree.. and for the two-strokes engines they also make the best injector oil...
