Why do I need to do my break in oil change at 300 miles for my 18 cbr1krr?

With almost all other bikes its at 600 miles. Why do I need to do it at 300 miles on the 2018 CBR1kRR unless I am reading it wrong?

I would have done it at 50 miles personally. You would be appalled at all the crap floating around in a brand new engine.

2004 CBR1000RR (Yelena)- modded track/street bike, 398lb RTR!
2002 RC51 (Christina)- rode hard and put away wet, sold
2006 CBR600RR (Nikki) - how the addiction started, sold

Yes change after first small ride then do a proper break in and change at 600m.

How are you breaking it in? Riding like a cruiser or hard break in by taking it to closer to red line in each gear? (If possible while being safe and abiding all laws)

Riding it like a grandma but I avoid staying at any one RPM or Speed for any extended period of time.

I rode mine home from the dealership and changed it. WhereTF does all that come from, its hard to believe that much crap isnt scoring everything all to hell. Then I changed it again at 350-400 or so. I guess it depends on if you plan on keeping it forever and what the cost of oil is worth to you in the long run.

I also put in a fancy plug with a magnet. I ordered two, a titanium one and a common brand name(gold plug or something) the magnet was stronger on the gold one so I went with that even though it was heavier(I know if SaratogaLED reads this he'll cringe at that). Every oil change I remain happy I got the magnet one.

The oil in the sump comes from the engine. The oil coming from the sump goes threw the filter before going threw the engine. So that's how its not traveling around hurting things. But the magnetic plug is never a bad thing, heavier or not

I changed after coming from dealer and broke it in hard, each gear up to red line and engine braking for few hundred Kms. I have 15,000kms on it and not eating oil or anything like that. Using Honda synthetic 10w30 oil.
