    I hit 500 miles on my Speed Triple RS today and then wheeled her into the garage and it clicked over to 501 miles :D

    Apparently I've been babying her. I thought I needed to limit her to 5000 rpm or lower until 500 miles, but it's 6000 rpm after 300 miles. Break in is going fine, consistent variation on the throttle, some engine braking, etc. I'll just extend the 6000rpm limit an extra 150 miles or so, and then move on to the next step.

    What an awesome motorcycle!

    Just rolled over the 500 mile mark on my Speed Twin last night myself. Happy moment. When I read your post I read it as ”wheelied into the garage.” Lol, thought well that’s a hell of a way to celebrate!:joy:

    What revs do they recommend upto 500 miles on the twin.

    Owners manual doesn’t give a specific RPM range, but the sticker on the tank (if I remember correctly) was to keep it below 4K until 300 miles, and under 5k until 500 miles. And then the obvious “don’t keep steady RPM’s for extended periods of time,” and “do not use full throttle,” etc.
