i would baby it a little for the first 100 Miles. after that i would not. just do not hold it on a steady FWY speed. up and down shift the trans and change engine loads. even a brisk full throttle for a short blast is fine. many bogus reasons why Kawasaki wants you to hold back as you are learning a new bike. do you think they break in the dealer or factory demo bikes ? NOOOOOOO
