    Proper break in

    Hi just bought a 2014 fzr svho
    wondering about the proper break in.
    the manual says first 5 mins operate with engine speed at 2000 r/min i guess that means rpm,
    For the next 90 mins with engine speed below 5000 r/min.
    is this all?

    Yep, I've had HO, SHO and SVHO, have done break in according to manual (1.6hrs) and not a zot more, then nailed them with plenty of WOT... The manual says "Can then be ridden normally" and I reckon that's pretty normal...

    Anyway, they have all have run great, just get better and better, personally I don't think they truly loosen up until 15-20 hrs... the harder you ride them the more they like it (disclaimer - all stock except for ribbon delete)

    My recommedation is running at low speed (below 5000 rpm) for at least 10 hrs, change oil to removed all the waste, and RE FLASH the ECU.

    That's 9hrs of unnecessary low speed... Rip it after an hour. An hour is already too much.
