Just ride it, and ride it hard and with various revolutions on the engine. The engine is already bench tested at KTM and they run them to the rev limit and checking maximum power, and then the engine is almost runned in already from fabric.

They say you need to take it slow and not exceed given rpm just so you don´t kill yourself with a new bike, so you can´t sue them if you get hurt :D
