I've heard that if you don't use mil.spec. 883762534099826538.98 which is a full "Type 3" synthetic in the transmission it'll grenade the day after your warrenty runs out and the dealer won't cover it ........

For proper break-in you have to start with a cold engine, use Wal*Mart house brand 10w40, hold it at full throttle in neutral for 5 full minutes then shut it off, spray the engine with a garden hose and then tighten everything up with thew biggest breaker bar you can find....then drain the oil, fill the crankcase with gasoline, drain it out and fill it back up with more Wal*Mart 10w40



that way everything will wear in right and she'll run like poop through a goose..

Default A little off the topic.

Sorry for the hijack;



Can I use the moto-man engine break-in technique on my new Yamaha Vino 125?



Thanks for all your help.

Don't forget to add a tube of valve lapping compound every third oil change to keep the valves properly seated.

I wish someone would develop a prosthetic brain. Coz I could sure use one. Between kids and grandkids my old one is about kaput!

Yes. Works for all internal combustion engines. But, remember the Vino is not a 'Busa, so don't try to run it in like that. Are you wearing a helmet?

The article balanced the arguments pro and con for helmet use. The correct decision about whether or not to wear a helmet strongly favors wearing one over not wearing one.

Default to helmet or not?

I work in an ER and I ride. Wear a helmet. Helmets are life saving at speeds well above the legal limit in many situations. i will go one step further and say wear a full face helmet. Leather or other abrasion resistant material is also a must. It's ok to let those who ride decide, but it's just plain dumb not to wear one. I don't buy the argument about restrcting vision or hearing either. people will say that and ride bikes so lound they could'nt hear artillery firing beside them. it's a feeble argument at best.
