After 500 mile mark I was gradually opening it up and doing full throttle at top speed a couple of times in very short bursts. Now the 1st service is done I was wondering if going full throttle for 15 minutes on a faster road would be ok for my Sprint 125?

You know, I've had my 150 at WOT since the day I bought it. It's fine. Did you have the valves adjusted at your first service?

No idea if valves were checked or not or if it is something done at the 1st service.

That is a point of contention. I say yes they should. Some say no.

Break-In usually consist of three to five heat cycles with varying throttle speeds to seat the piston rings. After that itís time to let it eat. Never hold it at one speed, always varying your speed but never wide open. Never go past three quarters.
