Thanks mate, what guidelines did Yamaha give you. I forgot to ask all this as I was to excited at the time of pick up haha.
So you didn’t go above 7000 rpm for what the first 1000kms or so?

Owner's manual specifies 0-600 miles to keep it under 5k RPM except for momentarily and keep engine load low and then same but 6k for miles 601-1000. Complete a first oil change at 600 miles. It was mentioned to me by the dealer that the break in oil is a lighter weight. Yamalube does make a mineral oil and so it wouldn't surprise me if there's mineral oil in for the initial break in but I'm not sure.

I have been doing my absolute best to stick to this schedule. The trouble is that in 4th gear and beyond there isn't much power below 5k and the manual also specifies low load and so cranking on the throttle (which isn't good for an engine anyway -- high gear, low rpm, high load) limits rideability.

Different bike but... I put 100 street miles on my 2022 R1, varying speeds and RPMs.
Then took it to Road America for a track day. 🙂
