    Ride it like you stole it no extended time at high revs and no sticking to one rev range for extended periods.

    The break-in process is basically the same as stated in the manual for all past 4-tecs. Only difference is that the ECU limits top RPM for the first 5 hours. I'm on hour four of my break-in and spinning around 7800 RPMS. It seems to go up about 200 RPM every hour.

    Other than that, just like the others said; I'm riding it normal with no extended WOT runs and varying the throttle a good deal. In my opinion the ski is pretty well broke-in by the 5 hour mark. I also like to change my oil twice during break-in, once at 4-5 hours and then again at the 10 hour maintenance.
