kpaul says RTFM ... Read the Frackin Manual




So this turkey knows more than all of the mechanical engineers in Japan who design motorcycle engines. I don't think so.. read your owners manual

That is a very old site. He obviously knows a thing or two about motors. All kawasaki's come with the same sticker...so don't give me the read the manual speil. Not all Kawasaki's could possibly need to stay under 4,000rpms. My ninja 250 only hits 40 or so at 4000rpms in sixth gear. A zx10 hits alot higher at 4000rpms in sixth gear. Those stickers are there for legal reasons more than mechanical. They don't want some squid to hit the rev limiter for three hours straight the first day he buys it.

I have heard great stuff about MotoTune, and his bikes regularly win races. Yes it is true that the rider wins the race as much or more than the bike, but if the fast guys are riding his *****, that means it works.

I think it makes sense to ride the bike during break-in the way your going to ride it after it's broken in. Don't beat on the thing but work it hard. Make sure the bike is warmed up, proper oil grade and go for it!

I don't know how new or revolutionary this is. The folks I ride with have talked about flogging the thing every now and then during break in for maybe thirty years. Prolonged high speed running is the real enemy. It's bad for motorcycles too.

A mate of mine was a motorcycle cop for a few years and he told me that when he and his partner were given their new BMWs, his partner thrashed his ride from the word go, for the same reasons as given by motoman. - Pete always swore that his partner's bike was faster...

I'd love to engage in a pompous display of pompousness but even I know at least one or two of my limits...Hey, MO. Here is a great idea for an article. Right in ft of yer schnozzes.



I can't wait for quotes from unnamed industry tech insiders, etc.



Come on. Do it.
