Without a hour meter how do you know roughly how many hours are on the machine ? Before i start getting on it harder . Im at 108 miles now and 3rd tank gas , dealer said 3 tanks till i change break in oil . There may be a post about this so if there is, just attach a link to it please .

I would change it now and start pushing it in to the 6K range starting for short bursts then longer ones with some cool-downs between.

Three tanks and only 108 miles? I get about 187 per tank...if I ride civilized...lol:)

Well 1st time I filled it all the way up , and took it down to where 2 bars were left on gauge and filled back up but I didn't top it off to where you could see it like the 1st time,  3rd time I put gas in it there was still 3 bars on gauge so I haven't run it to almost empty .
Ill go head and get oil and change it soon . It just confusing with the manual , says 10hrs no more then half throttle , next 10hrs no more then 3/4 throttle , hard to judge without a hr meter. I highly doubt most even baby it through break in period .

Reality is almost 90% of the breakin happens within the first 30 minutes. After that it's polish and piston skirt adjustments. You need to start pushing it before the hash marks on the cylinder are no longer able to make adjustments to the skirts. After that...well you have heard of engines that were broke in real easy not performing like one that wasn't. This is why. Change the oil and start pushing it for short bursts increasing to longer ones.
