I stand corrected. The principles of internal combustion engines vary widely based on the type of frame (car or bike) they are used in. How crazy of me. Next thing you know somebody's gonna put a car engine in a bike and Porsche will be helping out with bike engines.

Default OK My mistake I should of clarified before asking the question

Motorcycle engines still require valve adjustments right? Do Porche engines? Do Prosche engines rev to 14,000 rpm?



My mistake I should of clarified the difference by asking if Porche uses a motorcycle engine...

Excellent Point on the warranty claims... But I think someone could like I said before get a marketing advantage by saying "Our Engines are high-tech,No break in period required" or "Ride your ZX-8 V-4 on track days right off the showroom floor"

Do motorcycle engines still require valve adjustments? I don't think there's one answer. Some do but for every engine that REQUIRES an adjustment, there is an owner who has never had to do it. Yet the manufacturers still tell us to check the valves every so often regardless of whether they need adjusting. Would be great advertising to say "You never have to check or adjust valves on Bike X". But no manufacturer does that. Why??? Better safe than sorry. Same for break in period.

Default Perfect Solution

Do what I did...buy a demo. This way you can thrash from the get go and it doesn't matter because somebody else already disregarded the break in period for you.

Do you check the valves for adjustment on a Porsche engine? I was trying to say that motorcycle engines are different they don't have hydraulic valves like Buells, Harleys and cars do.

You're both right, as I said in the earlier thread:



"It's true - kpaul and I are the same person. A transporter malfunction split us into two beings with diametrically-opposed personalities. I became the logical, humorous one with the excellent personal hygiene."
