I might be inclined to go with this break in method. Controversial.

Prolene,

I've totally read up on that method before. I have a lot of buddies with sport bikes where they've done this method.

I would definetly prefer to break in my engine hard, as I think it's a better way to seal it, but i'm too afraid of the warranty repercussions. Especially with the known flaws of the GT-S engine (although, I think they fixed all the flaws after 2002).
Thanks.

I did read in another of the Mototuner articles how steel connecting rods stretch with revs, and titanium does not. Makes sense if broken in hard, the rings get used to getting higher into the cylinder, but if gently, a shoulder might develop in the cylinder that prevents this extra squish later on.
