    2014 fzr break in

    im heading down to the ramp in a little bit to toss it in the water for the first time.. from what i read i believe that the break in would be something along the lines of..

    dont go over 2000rpm for the first 5-10 minutes..
    vary throttle for the first hour and a half without going full throttle..
    then varying rpms with some full throttle until about 10 hours..

    does this sound about right ?

    I let mine idle out thru the no wake zone for about 7mins...rode varying throttle for about 25-30mins and then rode it like I stole it!

    Too each their own on breakins...but you listed exactly whats in the owners manual. Good luck with having patience not to squeeze that throttle if you go by the book.

    I have a feeling I'll last about as long as you did before wanting to rip this thing...
    I'll try and contain myself though..

    Basically, I did the same. First 10 minutes was low rpm thru the no wake zone. Then about 60 minutes of varied throttle and then ride it like you stole it and enjoy the hell out of it while you do. I am around I think 18hrs on my 14 fzr now

    That should be first few minutes at 2000 rpm, not less than 2000 rpm - it's actually better for the top end...

    I had it out for about 1800-2300 rpms for the first 10 minutes or so.. Varied the throttle for a good 45 minutes and then gave it some gas.. I can say that after about 45 minutes of total time on the machine, there was a very big noticeable difference in engine performance, throttle, and sound of the ski.. Almost like the ecu woke up or something..

    I put an hour and a half on the machine and I can safely say, it was the greatest hour and a half of riding I've done in quite some time.. Not having to worry about it sinking or breaking down on me (like my old seapoo) made an amazing ski, even better

    The really critical part of the break in is seating the rings, as these ski's do make a decent amount of boost from factory. So long as you gave it a decent amount of time before going WOT and varied the RPM's enough for the bearings you should be good to go.

    Manual says 2k rpm for 5 minutes and up to 5k for 90 additional minutes. After that is ride as usual. Did mine by the manual and ran 70.6 in chop and a 290lbs rider at 1.8 hours.
