;DHey Welcome! That SE paint job rocks!

If you want 6 opinions on break-in, just ask 5 people. The 4000 RPM redline is just about impossible to abide by. Go easy at first, especially since you are learning and getting comfortable, switch gears often and vary the rpm. Avoid really long rides at the same RPM and basically ride it like you plan to ride it when its broken in, minus the temptation to go high-speed hooligan every once in a while. Once you covered the first 1000 kms or so and have an oil change or two behind you, then you can wind it out plenty.

Enjoy and have a blast.
