Default Re: Are 600 break-in miles really necessary?

If you only keep a bike a few years with low mileage, I would not expect there to be much difference between break in procedures with modern bikes. If dyno runs or oil consumption are shown to be different in this short time that might show simething.



How about people that have kept a few new bikes for 1000,000miles or more and had no problems - what are their break in procedures?



I agree with the last post..that sounds like very sensible advice.

overnight's a bit much. A few hours and the motor is/should be cool enough to get run-up again.

One last thought......I think many riders get way too cerebral about break-in, oil, and a ton of other stuff. I think our motorcycles are a lot tougher than we give them creidt for and spend a lot of time laughing their collective backsides off at the extremes we go to to feed them what we think they need while their requirements are much more sensible than the crap we bestow upon them. Cheers, Jack

I rode this weekend High 40s and rain. Loved every minute of it. Not a Poser Harley Rider in sight, only Gold Wings, BMWs and sportbikes. Ahh the way it should be everyweekend.

Right all the stuff in owners manual is just bunk and those stickers on the tach are just decoration. NOT
