well, in any event, be fuckin careful bro - it's a serious machine as you probably realize.
Shift when you wish - just be sure an don't ever-rev it, you should adhere to keeping it under 6000 fo the first 500/600 miles (occasionally you can bring it beyond, but use common sense). For 600-1000 try and keep it under 8 grand - remember not to run at one RPM constantly, when you're cruising one the highway, change gears from 6th back to 5th 4th etc - this way the engine gets to run at different rev levels and the tranny gets to run in different gears - it's more important to keep things changing than it is to keep it under a certain level.
lastly, my recomendation is to change the oil at only 250.300 miles- thats when most of the real metal shavings and gunk really wear of the jackets- then you can change it again at 1,000 miles when you're really past the break in period.
good luck and ride safe
