Breaking In new 1190

I pickup my new 1190 Std. Tomorrow 2/1 . Just some thoughts on some other orange 1190 owners. Break in period. Dealer told me do the recommended break in for first 600 miles. No constant revs, dont rev over 6500 rpms etc.
I am not new to new break in , but I come from the back ground KLR 650,
KLX 250 .. and other dirt bikes.. that I rode them like I stole them from the start... Did oil change after about 100 miles.. then another after about 500 . Never once had any issues with new motors and rings not seating.. I know there are always different school of thoughts. Just getting perspective from others on their new 1190s...First time KTM owner so just asking .... If this is in another thread sorry but was in a hurry !!!

well, you are going to get a dozen different opinions on this, but here is mine:
Break in is 90% complete (as far as ring seating) when you pick it up from the dealer. Between the dyno runs at the factory and the set up at the dealer the critical ring seating period is past. break it in as advised and you will be fine.

opposing opinions will follow I'm sure...

Of course! We've had discussions and comparisons in the past comparing bikes that were broken in carefully, and the stats seem to show these bikes were oil burners. I had one.

My advice would be 100 miles (or as much as you can stand) of on the gas/off the gas, careful shifting...then change the oil and flog her.

I'm a big fan of heat cycles. Keep the tach moving with lots of engine braking.

just from experience I have never had a bike that used oil, and they all seemed to hang in with their counterparts in a drag race (never put them on a dyno). all were broken in according to manufacturers recommendation with occasion quick bursts to redline.

actually I didn't follow things exactly on my 990. I rode around town for the first 150 miles then hopped in the interstate for 600mi. at 85 mph. it always ran fine and hadn't started to use oil yet when I got rid of it (20,000mi.)?

As I mentioned ring seating is done by the time you pick it up the break in period simply help other surfaced mate under less than full load.

I'm pretty sure you can break it in any way you want and it will be fine. my only concern would be with warranty issues. if something failed and the brain tells the dealer you flogged it during the break in period it may be a reason to deny a claim? of course this could just be tin foil hat theory?

Here is THE proper procedure: pick a sunny day, grab your gear- wallet, phone, camera, water, etc. Pick a direction of travel( for me this time of year in Colorado its east) and GO! Ride your new steed and enjoy! You aint going to hurt it by doing what KTM says. Shift before you see the BIG RED LIGHT and disappear into the great unknown. Come home change the oil and repeat as needed;-)

I just simply ran the crap out of mine until it reached 600 miles, then it turned into a pumpkin.

Seriously, i ran it normally with an occasional flirt with the red light. But that's about it. I've changed the oil and it was very clean. Now I'm ready to ping it off the rev limiter if the mood strikes me. I have bought about seven brand new street bikes. I've never had any motor issues whatsoever following a normal riding method.

Its very strainght forward.

Go to your owners manuel to page 72 part 9.2
Running in the engine

Guideline:
During the first 1,000km (620mil) 6,500 rpm
After the first 1,000km (620mil) 10,25 rpm

Do not labour it uphills making the engine chug.
Find some hilly billy terrain and work it through the gears.

Set the shift light to 6,500 rpm and just shift through the gears.

Try not to pussy it around and you will be fine..

How about some photos of the big boy, youre bike that is...
