Being way too anal about it I had a break-in process I used for the K12R I purchased last year. I can't remember if the "stay below" limit was 6,000 or 7,000 rpm for the first 600 miles. Either way you can move around very briskly on the new K engine and keep it below 6,000.
I restrained myself to 4,000 the first couple hundred miles and then added about 500 rpm each 100 mile increment thereafter.
With 800 on the clock I took it to a Mid Ohio track day and ran the bejezus out of it. As of 3,000 miles I have yet to add any make up oil.
My blue GT is scheduled to arrive this week and I plan on duplicating my break-in routine.
