Break in SHO
I know the dealer sayd 10 hours, but how soon can I go full throttle to see what she will do. Iam sure I have a while to go yet, she isnt reading a full hour yet

10 hours would be a safe bet...but if you o do it I wouldnt go WOT for more then 20 seconds....Might seat the rings better...

See owners manual. It describes break in, in detail. Which I did. Most dealers don't have a clue on what they are talking about, especially where I bought mine.

Do a search on break in, there's been a lot of discussion. Don't baby it!

I feel like I know more than ANYONE that works at my dealership. I would go with the hard breakin with varying throttle positions. Don't hold one constant speed until 5 or 6 hours. Don't hold full throttle for more than a few seconds.
Do a search you will find the proper method.

I have gone pretty hard with my SHO Cruiser run-in. So far, done 2.5 hours really quick and hard (after a good 5-10 minute warmup). It's just too tempting to go hard, especially when you have that much power under you. I have had no problems. Will complete the rest of the '10 hour' run-in this weekend. Going the same way. Bring it on.
