Default Re: Work and back (then back to work)

When you are breaking in the engine (a couple of tanks of gas will do it, but certainly not 35 miles) be sure to not run the engine down to low, especially with a heavy load on it.

Vary the rpm, and don't forget to check the whole bike/engine/installation for loose nuts and bolts. Check the head bolts (gently), and the intake and exhaust especially.
