If I had a new one, I would follow the book for warranty reasons if nothing else.
Do it just like the book says, I would not think you would notice that much difference anyway even if you did do the other way.
Another thing, statistics would play a huge role in what you said, and I can not imagine that somewhere there is a group of motorcycle enthusiast keeping up with motorcycles that were broke in fast and hard, and they had notes on all this. I would say it is not possible. I think it is someones personal opinion.
