Well am I ever Jealous
. I've been trying to get a K1200GT since the start of the year (I wanna blue loaded one) and I'm currently waiting for a JULY build with a August or early September delivery. That'll give me what, 2 months of riding, 3 if I'm real lucky?
Anyway, with respect to breakin (runin?), with all my new bikes I've found doing some tours around town is great. Go down to Eau Clair. Getting there will mean that you hit a number of lights, have to gear down and back up and keep the engine moving through the RPM band. Be more concerned about RPM than speed (well other than the obvious about speed). You want to run the RPM up to the 7K limit and back down again and NO cruising at a standard RPM. A nice ride somewhere, stop for 1/2 an hour or so for the engine to cool off and then ride again.
From my perspective you want to achieve two things:
1) Vary the RPM - no hard accelerate or braking for the first while.
2) Get the engine through a few heat cycles (Brought up to full operating temperature and then down again).
I haven't read the manual (cause I don't have one) yet but in the past with other bikes I hold the RPM down at the start but slowly build it up. So for the first X kilometers I'll hold it down to 7K then I'll bump it up to hit 8K for the next 100K or so etc.
So, if you have your bike now, make sure you come out for the "Ride for Dad" this weekend. I'll likely be on my Wing (as the K1200GT won't be here for awhile).
