If you don't want your baby to sound like a popcorn machine, run it at half the RPMs working range during break in period. Meaning if you have a 1000 - 18,000 RPM working range, run it around 8-10k RPM.
Thing is, service manual HAS to tell you a bullshit way of breaking in the bike because they can't tell you to go drive the shit out of it because they are meant for the roads. Theres a whole website about the breakin process for motorcycles as they are much different than cars. You DO want to run them hard as shit to seat everything proper. I'll try to find the website and post back... Figured there would be more knowledgeable people on this subject here on the forums.
