I thought you said your bike had 1k on it.If its not broke in and you put synthetic in it the rings are not gonna seat properly and its gonna run like

I dont know if that is truth or myth. I dont see why it would have anything to do with your rings not seating. Where Larry when you need him.

I put synthetic in mine at 600 miles. I now have 9500 and it's running like the day I bought it.

If you run one hard enough the rings will seat quick.As long as he keeps a check on his oil level and its not using oil he's ok..

Well Bull's got 1000 miles on himself...but the bike is used!!!

But I can imagine that new oil in general would help and possibly would help with the RPM's

I'm with ya Twisty... Larry would have a good answer for this. But I tend to side on the side of caution!
