How did you break in your new ski?
So, I've always followed the owners manual break in procedures for any new engine I've ever owned. Cars, Trucks, Motorcycles, etc.
Then I came across a thread here (can't remember which one), but I bookmarked this link: http://www.mototuneusa.com/break_in_secrets.htm
Now after reading that page, I'm seriously considering this type of break-in. What he's saying makes perfect sense, and the pictures are amazing.
I'll be going out tomorrow morning for my first ride (break-in) on the FZS, and I'm wondering what you did to break in your engine? Did you follow the manual, or did you do something different.
Please forgive me if this has been discussed previously, I'm obviously very new to this site.
Edit: I just realized this is probably in the wrong forum. If a mod wants to move it, please feel free.

Personally, I let it idle for 5 minutes in the water, gave it a little gas for about a minute and then let it rip! I did some WOT passes but I did not hold the throttle wide open for more than a few seconds.

I rode it like I stole it, varied RPM! You don't have very long to seat the rings. So just don't go out there and baby it. It needs pressure behind the rings!

i let the engine warm up for around 3 minutes at idle to 1500 rpm, then half an hour at 3000 rpm, then half an hour below 6000 rpm, then let it rip

Let her warm up, then rode her hard. Varied throttle some. Just ride it without going WOT for too long.
