Not over 4K, lots of hard acceleration and deceleration to seat the rings, change oil (conventional)and filter after 50 miles. Continue with acceleration and engine braking to 200 miles, change oil and filter, broken in! For the first 1K miles or so run conventional oil (my fav is RotellaT ) and then some like to go to a synthetic. NO OIL WITH FRICTION MODIFIERS!! The wet clutch doesn't like it...
