After covering 2000 km (app. 1300 miles), you can increase riding
speeds on your BMW gradually to the maximum specified limits in each gear,
provided of course that traffic and road conditions allow.
Until at least 500 km (300 miles) have been covered, try to avoid violent brake applications particularly from high speeds, and do not subject the brakes to extended heavy applications. The brake pads and linings also have to be bedded in before they can achieve their full friction ratings and most favorable rates of wear. The tires, too, should be run in in the same manner as the brakes for the first 500 km (300 miles).
The first Service is due after 1 000 km (600 miles) In addition to oil changes, a series of checks and adjustments are made which are of vital importance for your BMW's future performance and reliability (see 'Service and Maintenance').
