I've read that you break in a 4 stroke by going easy the first tank and very your speeds. Very similar to a 2 stroke.

First 100 miles no more than 6000 rpms for extended time. Next 200 miles no more that 8000 rpms for extended time. Thats been the proceedure so far.

500 miles change oil and filter. :div20:

Ride it fairly easy for the first 50-100 miles. Then make sure you vary what you do. Go short Wot runs and followed by easy trail riding. By 300 - 400 miles you're good to go. If you baby it like some tell you to you'll burn oil later.

I personally wouldn't change over to synthetic oil at the first recommended oil change. Just my $.02.

You can switch to synthetic after 500 miles, it will be fine. It might take longer for the engine to fully loosen up, but it wont do any harm.
As for the correct break-in riding procedure, just dont run it wide-open for prolonged periods of time for the first 1,000 miles and you will be fine.
Some say, "break it in hard if you plan to ride it hard", but I dont believe in that.
