Default Re: This Guy Disagrees

Well, when there's a disagreement, compare the credentials of the people making their arguments. I think Cameron (one of the most respected motorcycle engineers) and Muzzy (one of the most respected motorcycle builders/tuners) take top honors out of everything posted in this entire thread. It's up to you who you want to believe but I'll continue listen to the most educated ones.

If KPaul's IQ drops just two more points, we're gonna have to put him out in the sun and water him twice a week.

Default I agree, you get what you pay for and that goes for advice

Why would you trust your bike to some yahoo on the internet. Cameron and Muzzy have proven track records.

God, you are pathetic. You need to hire a damn good writer because, obviously, you are totally incapable of an intelligent response. I can handle amateur anytime, but you are making this way too easy. OK Dumbo, the ball is in your court.....

I got a 1998 Ninja ZX-6R with over 30,000 miles on it. Didn't follow the break in period at all, never had a problem with it. In fact one mechanic I know took it for a ride and said it was one of the strongest 6R's he has ever ridden. I guess that I am saying I think the break in periods are a waste of time.

Sorry this is the best I can do http://www.ericblumrich.com/topgun.html



Hey I trust engineering brethren over at Honda, Kawasaki, Yamaha, and Suzuki if they say via stickers/owners manual ride your bike a certain way during the breakin period. I do it. I don't think I take advice from from some yahoo on the net who has his BSME from Jiffy Lube. OK

Note to self: never buy a bike from bjhoppy. On the other hand maybe my 01 ZX-6R will last a long time since I followed the break in procedure.
