Well I would not worry about it. I would not rebuild quite yet. Just read the mototune article and go from there.

i don't think you are supposed to ride it hard when braking it in. Just do what the book says. You should be fine! I think you are not supposed to ride it hard!

I think it's impossible to "take it easy" on the motor for 300 miles/10 hours or whatever. That's torture! Your bike will be fine. Enjoy it!

You did nothing to really "damage" your bike. The rings most likely won't provide the best seal but you'll be fine. Now that you know about the break it in hard method do it that way.
