All my engines are broken in on the dyno these days so yes, they are hit pretty hard right from the beginning.

First welcome back.
Second great pictures, but the TT pictures seem to be missing.

On the new airplane engines we would get them up to temp, then fly them.
Take off was max performance, after 10 hours oil change with standard oil.
Another 50 hours oil change again, them start on normal service intervals.

I'm not a fan of using synthetic until you have some time to get the rings to set, on bike's we would do loads of engine braking to try and force the rings out (bed them in).

Ask 10 people, you most likely get 12 opinions

Good point, and something that bears mentioning. I also use dino-oil until the first normal change so break in engine, change w/dino oil, 500 miles, change with synthetic.

I think one thing that everyone will recommend is dino oil for until the first oil change. Does the dealer do this? If not they should.

Don't know on bikes. Several car companies use synthetic from the get go because many won't bring in the car before then.

If you figure 50 mph, 500 miles would be around 10 hours.
Same rate, 2,500 miles would be around 50 hours.
So for both oil changes your looking at under $150. Cheap insurance.

IMO,, let the bike get warm before getting on it. Then heavy engine breaking while slowly going up from low rpm to higher rpm's.

Watch some youtube video's of engine break in's on some expensive engines.

I've got exactly same model with the akra exhaust. So much cooler in that spec. I rode mine in hard from the get go. Changed the oil at 500 miles then blasted fook out of it until 1000 and then changed oil again. Pulls strong with no noises at all.

"Basic stuff fellas. Use your head for something other than to break your next fall."

"There's this adage that we have 2 ears and one mouth so we should listen twice as much as we talk. Unfortunately with the Internet people have taken this old adage and turned it around. They have two eyes and 10 fingers so they think they need to post 5 times as much as they read. And since they have 10 fingers and one brain, they only have to think 10% of the time! "

Thanks for that, I have never really played with the different types of oil but I will be sure to try it on the Ninja.

Only reason I ask so much about break in, is because I wont be using the bike as much as I would.
So far the bike is nearly 3 months old and I have done 470 miles on it ha!
If you seen the weather in Scotland you would understand.

The Akra makes the bike IMO. Yeah got real lucky with my Spec. All I need to do now is keep it rubber side down!

I understand, wet weather riding is one of my least favorite things to do.

Guess this gives you a pass when the weather is nice.

SORRY, I can't today. Weather is nice getting my motorcycle broke in is a must.

Welcome back. The new 636 looks gorgeous. The trip looks like one for the ages. Someday I'll get around to doing that. Any track day plans with the new bike?
