Warming up your fuel-injected beast...

What temp do you let the guage get up to before you roll out to go to work/school/store? I get to 150 before leaving myself...

It's always been said to ne that you can start the bike and go right away but for us choke/carb riders good habits die hard.

I have several fuel injected bikes with fast idle switches. If the bike will idle on its own (fast idle turned completely off), its time to ride. The rest, ~100.

Sometimes I have to ride before it heats up to keep from off the neighbors at 5:30am. I usually keep the revs as close to idle as possible riding down my street. I'll be going 30 in 6th lol. Once it reads over 100 I'm good to go. I was actually wondering this morning if I could cause valve damage or something if I rode straight away with out letting heat up?

I always start the bike first then put on my helmet and gloves to let it warm a bit. You can cold start and go immediately on any electronically fuel injected vehicle and it will run fine. The question is, do you want to put a load on an engine before the oil warms up?

My next-door neighbor is a swat officer so I MAKE SURE to have my exhaust facing their living room everytime I start the bike in the AMs. A few low-revs and all for extra measure. They complained once but I used the Deaf card. They ended up apologizing for complaining.

What does the guy being a SWAT officer have to do with you being a though? He's not some beat cop, he's basically a special forces trained badass, you should give him some respect son.

Nope. Computer handles that for you.

I let it warm up a little as often as I can, but if I'm in a hurry I'll head out regardless.

I will fire up the bike and let it idle as I put on my jacket/helmet. I do try to limit RPM's and shift slowly until everything warms up, though. I think thats more important than anything.
