Re: EU (2008) Fireblade Manual - Running In - Sparse
I wouldnt suggest following my example for break in, but it does give you an idea of how resilient the engines are. The day i bought my bike I put 190 miles on it. I rode some fast twisties, some freeway, some stop and go city traffic, and quite a bit of hard acceleration. I took it in for my 600 mile service at about 690 miles and then really got on her, the engine is amazing, I had no issues with oil burning, and after the first 300 miles there wasnt any soot forming in the pipes.
