Am I reading this owner's manual correctly (lousy manual by the way) stating that the break-in period is 1,000 miles???

Never heard of such a thing in a motorcycle.

Maybe 400-500 miles but a 1,000?

Is this the consensus of the forum members?

Hey. great forum!

Thanks

Yeah I feel the same way.  I bought 2 TW's, one had 300+ miles and the other had 900+ miles.  I considered both to be broke in enough to ride however I felt like.  If you're asking because you just got a new one, my only recommendation would be to change the oil a lot in the first 1K miles....first time at 100 miles.  You'll see lots of shavings around the filter for the first couple of times but that's normal.  Have fun!
