I don't know if it has been mentioned before in a thread but I was reading the user manual on-line at work from Ducati site and notice that it says you should only go up to 7000 rpm for the next 1500 km after the first service !! WTF :eek:

Another 1000 miles at only 7000 rpm are they having a laugh :(

Is the engine that fragile lol

Think I will stop reading any literature from now on !

My dealer recommended up to 6000rpm until the first service , then go up 1000rpm with each of the next 100 miles . ie 700 mile 7000rpm , 800 mile 8000 rpm etc. until 1100 miles done for a nice reliable smooth engine.

Picked up my new 899 today, the tech at the dealer said not to exceed 6000rpm until the first service. I was pretty well behaved today, spun it to 7000rpm a few times. Will spin it to 8000rpm tomorrow morning when i go for a ride.

I dont believe in babying any new performance bike, but i wont be bouncing it off the limiter either. There has to be somewhere in between:)

cheers

I think technically what they mean is: 6K RPM for 600 miles & then 7K RPM for the next 600 miles. (Until 1200 miles - I'm rounding numbers here & I don't know if I totally agree with them)

i doubt the engine is that fragile but it's probably the way they discovered or think will help get the most out of the engine, hopefully that's actually whats happening

I'm keeping mine to the 6000 a majority of the time, but will then give it a blast through the gears to 9/10000 then back down to 6000. Engines need to be worked but not thrashed to death during the break in period, I've done this with all my bikes and they've all ended up with a nice smooth revving engine. One the 600 mile service done ill up to 8k, doing the same through the gearbox, once I hit 1000 miles that's it, ride it as it should be:D

Mines at 950 miles and I cut it lose all the time. Smooth as butter, I have yet to bounce it off the limiter, aside from one time on accident.
