1200 mile question

just got my 1200 mile service.... The owner's manual says reduced speeds and engine speeds until 3000 miles. What does this mean? I figured I could let it rip finally.

Yeah there is a second break in period up to 3000 if you really want to follow the book.

Actually, I think it's 3100 miles. You can exceed 5500 RPM, but you're not supposed to rev it to redline "that often". Once you pass 3100 miles, you can trash the thing
