Suzuki GSX-R 1000 Service Manual: Break-in procedures

During manufacture only the best possible materials are used and all machined parts are finished to a very high standard but it is still necessary to allow the moving parts to break-in before subjecting the engine to maximum stresses. The future performance and reliability of the engine depends on the care and restraint exercised during its early life. The general rules are as follows.

  1.  Keep to these break-in engine speed limits:

Speed limits
initial 800 km (500 miles): below 7 000 r/min up to 1 600 km (1 000 miles): below 10 500 r/min over 1 600 km (1 000 miles): below 13 750 r/min

  1. Upon reaching an odometer reading of 1 600 km (1 000 miles) you can subject the motorcycle to full throttle operation. However, do not exceed 13 750 r/ min at any time.
