Default Re: Break in secrets

I don't know for sure how it will pan out with these 2 strokers but here is how I have broken in every motorcycle I have ever owned.

Start it and warm it up
1st gear run it up til it almost hits the red line
let off the throttle and let it engine brake to "almost" lugging
repeat through all gears, pull over have a beverage and let it cool down
Repeat the process again.
Change oil....Done

My engines have always been strong. If you break them in "easy" they fall apart when you get on them hard!
