Ozmoses: I didn't oil the cylinders or pistons and only put a small amount of light oil on the rings (mainly to help with fitting) that would have burnt off within seconds. It's early days yet and I've only done 30 miles but it feels to me like they've seated properly and are working as expected. I've only had rings not seat properly for me once in the past and that was pretty well immediately obvious.

I probably won't stick religiously to the break-in procedure from the manual and I've read a few things that say it's important to run the motor all the way up and down through the rev range. What I won't be doing is cracking the throttle wide open and revving the hell out of it really quickly
