break in

well, this is the way i did my 03 R6:

for the first 50kms (the ride home) i took it easy not going over like 8000RPM, and always going up and down with the throttle, letting it see every range of rpm, but not holding it steady at any rpm for very long.

and after that i rode it like i would ride on a normal day. I would still let her rip to like 10-11000 RPms but i would not hold it there. just quick snaps.
I did this till like 600-800KMs.

Then i changed oil.

the bike has 1000kms on it now and i run it hard, but not to hard. It has seen redline a few times but it has never been held there. I will ride like this till about 1200KMs. Then after 1200 I will ride it like everyone else

some say drive it hard some say drive it easy. I beleive the most important time is the first 50KMs.

The bike runs like a top, and have no problems what so ever.
