    1) Engine Oil (If yes {Which one?} No{Then when?})
    2)Oil Filter (Yes or no)
    3)CHain Lube ?
    4) brakes and others things oils
    5)Any other thing?
    6)I have no taflon coating on my bike any wax or shampoo for bike wash?
    You can ride for an hour or so during running in provided you take a break after every hourly run for 10-15 min.
    This will :-
    1. Help cool down the motor/engine. (Here'e where the fan part comes - let it switch off by itself)
    2. Your body will get a much needed rest. This is realized when doing 300+ kms trip.

    Now, to your queries.

    1. Engine oil - Stick to the stock engine oil till 8-10k kms. Then you may switch to FS oils safely. Why wait till 10k? So that the engine components bed-in properly and you remain tension free from the engine perspectives for the next 7-8 years. (provided you maintain other components as well)

    2. Oil filter should be changed once < 500 kms (usually 1st service). If you still have the old oil filter, it may have residues from the running in engine.

    3. Chain lube - to be done once in 600-700 kms in dry weather and 300-400 kms during monsoon.

    4. Brake oil - Keep an eye on the reservoir near the front brake lever. Replace/top up as necessary. Bleed brakes everytime you change the pads.

    5. Usual service - engine oil, chain lube, sprocket cleaning, electricals check, tire check, rim check etc.

    6. Teflon coating @ SVC - daylight robbery! Use Waxpol and help yourself.

    Did the 7th paid, exhaustive svc yesterday. Changed the fork oil and got the wheel bearings greased. Will be changing the oil+filter on next svc as it was just 1800km since the last svc where they were changed. Air filter will be changed on the next svc too as there are just 10,500 km on the odo currently

    Do not give sudden bursts of acceleration. You may go upto red line during running in in the later phase, i.e; around the 1000 km mark.
    The idea is to give small bursts of increase in the RPM, so that the engine comes under varying loads and learns to do its job optimally. Accelerate linearly.

    I didnt go through much of your posts.. Whats your riding style?? Riping the bike?? Riding mostly in traffic?? or riding in moderate to low traffic on high gears??

    My bike gives me 34 to 38kmpl depending upon the way I ride it.
