OK smart asse LOL I think in this case the Wikipedia is safe to use as a source. My point was that small aircraft engines were low revving air and air cooled..

In an article in American Rider, Joe Minton when to the Honda factory and watched them assemble Gold Wings. At the end of assembly, each bike is placed on the dyno and run to redline at full throttle.



Then of course the owners' manual says to break it in gently.

Porche isn't a motorcycle is it? Nor does it use a motorcycle engine. Right. How about I use the phrase "you are spot on" or "you are correct sir" or how about "Right"

Did they rev to the red line gradually? Did they continue at high rpm? I think my owners manual said avoid going to the red-line. I think it said "for best engine break in result do etc "

That can't be right...why would the manufacturer tell us to break in a bike's motor gently? I mean, there's nooooo way they would want to just cover their butt's generally. (And if something did go wrong during that period, to reduce the number of warranty claims).



This absolutely cannot be a logical conclusion because the prophet says so. I am slowly falling in line.
