Default Re: Simulated Break In Period

i break in all my bikes the way i ride them. basically full throttle. i do take the time to clean up the motors before even running them, though. like porting the intake and exhaust, cleaning up the transfer case ports, etc...

it's a little more work, but it pays off.

my first bike, i tried to baby it for the first day, then couldn't take it anymore, and just rode it flat out. the motor still works great after 1500 miles or so.

and seriously, if you run your bike stationary for 30 minutes at a time, letting it cool down, then doing it again, you might as well get a pack of smokes and spend a day raging around town...
