Hello I have a question about break-in on a new Speed Triple, I've been very strict to the letter on following it, but on Friday I went over the rpm limited 6000 at the current limit for the mileage about 1500-2000k briefly for about 15 sec, should I be concerned or not, I would greatly appreciate some advice, it won't happen agin, I'm stressing about it, I plan on keep this beauty for good., thanks

Should you be concerned, not in the least. Forget about it and enjoy the bike.
A brief shot up into the higher RPM range won't hurt the engine one bit - all day wouldn't be good for it. That's all you need to be concerned about.
Carry on what you're doing; get the break-in period over with and then have some real fun.

You are very welcome TUP
The factories are pretty conservative about break-in procedures. Your short squirt up the rev range is nothing to that engine.
You have a great bike and it's going to be a lot of fun very soon, so don't be shy. Tell us your thoughts after you've ridden it a couple of thousand miles - or sooner BGRIN

Hello everyone, sorry it's been a while, I have about 1800 miles now and it's been a blast. This bike gets compliments all the time even from non riders. It's kinda cool when I catch a glimpse of people in cars looking at it, or men drivers driving next to me looking, lol. All these Triumphs are truly deserving to be admired, among the everyday cookie cutter bikes out there. Beautifully made, soul stirring, smile inducing, worry shrinking, works of technological art. I hope you all enjoy the same feelings as I do! Be safe!!

It is always nice to hear a new owner give feedback like this.

I'm REAL late to the party but I have some information to pass on that the General Manager and Service Manager told me about the break in period on my Tiger. . . "Don't worry about the speed of the bike or the engine speed. For the first few miles you should keep both down but after that, run with the traffic. If you are running too hard for short periods, just tone it down for the next few miles IF traffic will allow it. If traffic won't allow it, do so at the first chance. You won't hurt this bike by not following the write up in the manual."

Like I said, I know this is way after you asked but if there is any doubt in your mind, there was no harm done to your pride and joy.
