Finally got it today VRSCB, SE's, and bitz. Jean-Luc, head of servicing, says I should do 2,500 rpm for the first 100 k or so and then no more than 3.2k rpm. And yet the manual says 4k rpm for the first 80km and then 5,500 rpm. Who is right? Or does the SE upgrade need to be taken more gently.

Follow the manual.

I would spread it out over 2 days. Let it get hot, let is set over night, then hot again, and set over night one more time. Now ride it like you stole it. :2cents:

I know this is getting a little tedious...
My dealer told me 2500 rpm max for the first 60 miles (100km) and then 3200 rpm up to 500 miles (800 km). I told him the manual says 4000 and 5500 respectively. He says it's wrong! So who's right?

Cubota only you can decide what to do, for my money I would follow the manual and then tell the service manager you followed his advice. That should satisfy both HD and the manager.
