Default Re: Break-In Procedure

basically, when you're going fast downhill with the clutch in, no throttle, or engine braking, since it's not getting any gas, it's also not getting any oil. so you're doing 40 downhill with a piston scraping all the oil of the walls.

if i'm coasting down a hill, i usually "blip" the throttle a few times, just to give it some lube...
