CaligonTX is right

Reving an engine without load is very hard on it.
Not to mention totally pointless unless of course you are trying to shorten its life.

Read your manual it is likely mentioned there.

It's always mentioned at the MSF course... if you happen to take one. I'm sure that's a big issue for most people doing it, since they're generally squidlike in appearance.

Although, the first guy who ever told me about motohouston.com was revving the out of his bike without load right after I met him. I think he was just trying to impress me though.

He worked at Starbucks in Meyerland. Thanks, random motorcycle guy.

How about just having fun, being a fool, and acting stupid. Some people just f#ck around all day everyday and the bike just adds to that. They don't take anything in life seriously so why on earth would they take traffic/motorcycle safety any different. I am sure that's not what you want to hear but that's likely the truth...

Kinda the same as cutting to the front of stop lights, always making your way to the front of the group, freeway wheelies, running from cops and the list keeps going...

It is what it is ... but at least the repercussions of revving your engine won't land you in jail like some of the other stuff

Not saying I am for any of that or against any of that....just saying

I laughed really hard just reading that. I would have fallen over if I would have seen it in person. I wonder if he's still trying to get it fixed. What a tool.

I saw 2 crash down there, but no blown engines.

I can see revving a little (blipping the throttle) every once in a while, but never coming NEAR the limiter!

Would never want to condone that type of behavior on MH, but if you ask me off the record

By "Bouncing it off the limiter at PP1, red lights and in traffic?" did you mean catching your pipe on fire

I hit the rev limiter when riding the twisties sometimes. I like to keep it low geared for the extra torque. If I'm doing 70-80 and I want to pass someone I drop it to 3rd and the turbo kicks in. If I leave it there I hit the rev limiter pretty quick.
