170miles on my 650 Royal Enfield so far mostly as per "running in" instructions. 60mph at 4k revs.
Enough to open the taps up or keep it steady?

If it is like my Himalayan, it has really thin oil in it until first service. My dealer here told me to take it in at 800kms, not 500kms, which I did. I never bothered with their speeds for running in-i just treated it a bit gently, and never loaded the motor. S

Feels better with every kilometre ridden.
