Don't forget the accepted way to run in was to progressively increase revs, load and time at that load (and not to lug the engine with too few revs).

depends who does it, I had Sherburn in Leeds do mine, they replace the oil etc. at 2,000 and give a further 4,000 warranty or 6 months which ever the sooner after the 2,000 mile fettle
