Question Break In

Does anybody have the manual for an F800GS handy? I'm curious what they recommend for the max RPM during break-in, and how many miles they say to stay under it. Couldn't seem to find that info in my search. Thanks!!

5000 rpm / 1000 km

Running in
The first 1000 km:

* While running in the motorcycle, vary the throttle opening and engine-speed range frequently. Try to do most of your riding during this initial period on twisting, fairly hilly roads, avoiding high-speed main roads and highways if possible.
* Do not exceed the rpm limits recommended for running in:
Running-in speed
<5000 min-1

* No full-load acceleration.
* Avoid low engine speeds at full load.
* Do not omit the first inspection after 500 - 1200 km.
