Personally pedaling slow is not my method. I'd rather find a problem by pedaling fast or rolling down hill than going slow with the engine running. This is specially important if, like me, you're one of the brave souls who forgo tensioners.

I do agree about taking it easy for awhile when that engine is fired up.
