Default Re: Hi from MAINE. How far/long is safe to ride 2 stroke before resting motor???

With a new I do short rides which gets the engine up to temp varying throttle and rpm settings including going to full throttle The reason I do short ride isn't for the engine, its to ensure that everything else is working as it is and to remedy the usual chain stretch, loose bolts, etc.etc.. issues. I would avoid long rides on a new bike until you get at least 30 minutes or so riding around your neighborhood. You'll be amazed by the amount of things you need to tweek initially particularly if you just slapped the motor on without performing many of the recommended tweeks as part of the engine isntall.
