Break in "secrets"

Forgot about this site, ran across it over a year ago.

It's a VERY long read. Your thoughts?

i've read it before. pretty interesting read. dunno how i feel about it, i broke my bike in per the manual (with the occasional whomp on the throttle). both ways seem fine i guess. go with whatever gives you peace of mind. and what are you worried for gary, you told me you'd never buy a new bike

What I was doing can hardly be considered drag racing. I went 11.004 thats not very hard riding. And I skipped the burn outs.

The worst break in damage is done by the people who buy and travel. They are the ones who buy and the hit the hwy on cruise control. Thats how you make an engine burn oil like crazy. I have seen that first hand.

Use the "Search" button. I posted the same link and there was some discussion on break-in's here:

http://www.motohouston.com/forums/sh...ad.php?t=77486

I broke my engine in the moto-tune method. My buddy went strictly by the book. We took them to the Dyno compeltely stock and mine had 3 more hp.

wtf, is mh reading rainbow now


what the gary












manual break-in, doin' on my car right now


Some of the OOOOOOOOG's think you should break in, the way you would normally ride it. But those are old people and old bikes


I don't think we know anymore about the break-in of the bike than the engineers, and designers, but I suppose just do what you think would work, and make you feel better

I follow mototune. My bikes have always put down a few more hp than the same bikes broken in the "book" way, and have always consumed less oil.

I vary the rpm a little with low load far a little while and gradually start running it harder, main thing is not to put too heavy a load on it at low rpm, then run it like U stole it
