Break in period

Picked up an 06 with 886 miles on it last month. No owners manual. How many miles is the break in period? If I'm still in the break in mode, what do I need to do? Is it just keeping it under a certain rmp?

Too darn cold up here (Iowa). Can't wait to get er out.

I subscribe to the motoman type method.. ClickHere

lots of diffrent speeds, never holding at any one for too long. No high RPM's when it's dead cold, lot's of heavy decelerating.

Change the oil at 500 or less miles, then again at 1,000...filter's and oil is cheep...
