    Guys, after the 1st service what is the recommended RPM?
    According to the manual it's under 7k so around 85-90km/hr but I've read a lot of people saying to keep the bike under 4k RPM the entire run-in period i.e. 1600kms (I'm currently at 1000kms)
    So should I keep it under 4k or under 7k RPM?
    Also can you do breakfast rides (400-500kms) during run-in?

    Don't baby the bike. Ride the bike like you'll do on a normal bike. For long rides, take 10 min breaks after every 100-150km or 2hrs, whichever is earlier.

    Since its in the run in period and I don't want any problems with the engine later, I take utmost care with the revs and the rev matching with each gear.
    What do you think? At 1k kms is it time to take it above 4k rpm?

    You can do 5k rpm or 60 kmph in top gear, whichever is higher with no issues. Also don't shift under 3.5k rpm. Babying the engine is the 2nd worst thing you can do to any engine, with redlining being the first. Don't give a damn about what manual says. As long as you are not ripping the hell out of the bike, you should be fine. Nothing bad in running 5k rpm.

    Thanks man. I've been shifting between 3-4k RPM before the 1st service. I'll change that .

    Follow the manual. The people who built the bike also made the manual.

    Upto 800kms its below 4500rpm

    Upto 1600kms its below 7000rpm, so accelerate upto 7000rpm in all gears and allow the engine to decelerate and go down the gear box. Keep varying the speed, never ride at a constant speed until breakin is complete.

    Both acceleration and deceleration are important.

    Just out of curiosity, I see spark plug being replaced multiple times over two years. Any particular reason? Normally once a year sufficient, infact I don't even remember when I replaced my RTR's spark plug

    Mate, are these alignment problems associated with a particular batch of vehicles or common across all gixxer/sf's irrespective of production date?
