Here's a site i found when researching alternative motorcycle filters.
It's a good read on motorcycle breakin procedures.

to summarize: vary the rpm's for the first 50 miles, then change oil/filter. Ride hard again for next 100-200 miles, change oil/filter. then it's good to go...

here's the oil filter cross reference:
