Hi, great post and good info.
My dealer Carson Motor Sports told me about the
different break in oil and to continue using that for the first 6 hours.
My oil was pretty dirty and had a lot of metallic sheen after just 1 hour.
So my first change got new filter and just clean screens with the same mineral based oil from Belray.
So after 2 more hours (total of 3) the oil is filthy. I just want to also say I broke this first 3 hours in on the street
and was really taking it easy on the bike.
Now the last 3 hours of mineral oil will also be break in, but the 3rd change will be at 6 hours total and after that get
the fully synthetic Belray Thumper 10w50 oil. At first I did not like the idea of not putting in the oil the manual states. But
after discovering that the factory used a break in oil (Belray mineral) and really all you are doing is keeping clean oil in the engine
for the same break in period, it made good sense to me. I have to say, the 1 hour oil was as dirty as I would ever want my oil
coming out of a bike. I can not imagine leaving that first oil in for 6 hours. I also feel you can not completely break in the engine,
transmission and bike in only 1 hours. If I was not planning on keeping it for several years, maybe then but I like to take care of my
stuff and then when I sell it have great confidence that I am giving somebody the best bike I can.
