In the UK its 600 miles till the first service, which is what Honda recommend the engine to be "ran in".. Then every year or 8000 miles for your servicing.. When running in the RPM should not exceed 6000-7000RPM..

Hope this helps Peace??

... i did not do much of a "run in" ... even a new engine should be pushed to it's "low" upper edge every now and then ... that IMHO  :305:

My CT had it's first service on Saturday. On the way to the Bike shop I red lined the bike to get her working a bit harder, I wanted to bed the engine a bit more with the old oil so that we had a fresh start with the new oil.

The owners manual says run in period 300 miles. Engines are bench run nowadays and need a minimal run in period to bed in. I took it easy for the 300 then upped the rvs gradually until the 600 mile service. There was quite a bit of swarf in the oil when it was drained so glad to have it flushed with clean oil.
Each to their own but wouldn't harm the bike to give it a good run in rather than just thrash it from the word go as some advise.
