vote on how you broke in your cbr600rr

i've been reading mixed opinions about the subject of engine break-in. i've searched for and gone through numerous engine break-in threads in this site and a few other sites.

now, i just want to see a show of hands as to what you did during break-in with your 600rr bike.

Id just did what the dealer recommend because i didn't read that part of the manual after he told me. It may not be necessary for every engine, but I think the engineers at honda might know whats best for that engine. Their breakin period and practices are erring on the side of caution as parts build up oil films and seat themselves. Sure you could probably redline it all day after you turn the key the first time, but im sure there is one out there that will pop after a few hundred miles of it, just as there are many power discrepancies between two identical powerplants.

I didn't ride like a maniac because the RR was a big jump from my 500 and the power scared me a little at first but the key is to not stay at the same speed or RPM the whole time. I wasn't scared to bring it over a certain RPM but I was constantly changing gears never being in the same RPM range or gear for too long. I did that until my first service then I ripped it open. That's how I broke both of my bikes in.

once the road opened up from the dealership i took it to redline on just about every shift...the thing runs great..

my bike dyno'd at 102hp w/just a pipe...i've seen guys on here that have a lot more than just a pipe and aren't making that much...and i know its not the pipe that makes that big of a difference(meaning devil pipes in specific)...maybe its the break-in or maybe it was just a strong bike out of the box..i dunno

Haven't red-line it yet, just ride at legal speed. No special break-in procedure involved.

Rode I like I normally would(didn't hold it at a constant rpm cruising until the frist oil change at 600 miles).

I rode it home (about 6 miles) easy, seeing it had been 2 years since I rode)
then after the process of modding it (peeling stickers off, tail section mods, lowering)
I rode her like normal, some red lines, but nothing too easy, or too hard, change the oil regularly.

they only put that in there to MAKE SURE you don't break anything as it is UNDER WARRANTY. You HAVE to run it hard to "seat" everything properly. Kind of a centrifugal force thing.

The First Tank Is Most Critical. Tires Need To Break In Also Around 30 Miles Or Until The Tire Gets Scuffed For Optimal Traction. After Around 400 Miles It Should Be Safe Enough To Feel The Real Grunt Of The Top End. Just Keep In Mind All Of Those Metal Shavings In The Oil.

i broke my 03 in like option 2... added revs over time until i got to 1,000kms (600 miles) when i was using the whole rev range. it smoked like a chimney.

my 05 i did option 3, didn't use full throttle but made sure i used the whole rev range right from the get-go... no smoke, pulls like a budweiser horse...

I didn't vote cause the option was not on there. I brought it to my local tuner gave him $300 and he broke it in on the Dyno (350km). Made 104.5 HP(SAE) stock. I think he was pretty hard on it though. He must have went full throttle to get the dyno graph. He would let it run then cool. then run. then cool. I asked how much longer i need to take it easy for. He said "its ready to go to the racetrack." sweeet :)
