    Heard so many different opinions. Youtube is a good source of them.

    As a rule of thumb 500-1000 miles.
    Some folk will argue that the engines are broken in at the factory, but it's a good idea not to stress the clutch disc friction material and other various parts and give them time to bed in.

    In my experience, as long as you take it easy for the first few thousand miles you'll be fine.

    Remember to make sure the engine is fully up to temp before using all the available revs, but make sure you use them. It will make a healthier engine in the long term.

    Also, don't forget you're not just running in the engine, but the brakes, tyres, suspension etc....
