Default Re: Engine warm up

You need to keep one thing in mind; these aren't motorcycles. About the only similarity is they have two wheels and an engine. Comparing motorized bicycles and the engines designed for use on them to factory built motorcycles is futile. They are different animals, completely.

Overheating any engine is asking for trouble. Air cooled, means, cooled by air. In the case of our engines that means moving air or air moving over the engine. Not sitting for five minutes idleing.

As in every other aspect of this hobby people need to do what works for them. If it works for you, good. Those of us who have had good luck doing it differently will continue doing what works for us. Both sides of an issue need to be presented here and let the readers make their own decisions.
