Well, it looks like I didn't think this through very well, lol. I'm planning on re-building my motor within about the next month; and i was planning on swapping in a new clutch while the motor was out. What i forgot about was that the motor needs a HARD break-in for at least the first 20 miles, while the clutch needs an EASY break-in for 500 miles.

Am i right in assuming that i just need to break in my motor with the stock clutch, and then put the new clutch in after the motor break-in?

hard break in? you shouldent be taking it over 3k for the first 500 miles, so thats ok to break in the tranny at the same time.
hard break-in for the motor = running the motor hard for the first 20 miles seats the rings better ( http://www.mototuneusa.com/break_in_secrets.htm ).

Most clutches have a 500 mi break-in period (not suppose to more than 1/2 throttle)... not sure what you are talking about when you say i'm goin to break my tranny...

If I were you I would definitely take the time to replace the clutch after your engine breaks in. I would be royally pissed if my new clutch didn't seat right because I was too impatient to do a 2 hour clutch swap.
