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

I get your point, but I'm just twisting it now. (But Porsches STILL have a break in period in the manual, even there are no valve adjustments. Why?? They've already thrashed it to make sure it works...).

Bikes that do "require" valve adjustments don't all actually ever require them. Manufacturers still tell you to check them though. Why? I don't know, it would be great advertisement if you didn't have to check. I think it's the same with the break in period. It simply saves the manu some headaches. Just as there is no "proof" that the WFO method is proper, there is also no proof that owner's manual method is proper either. I guess you have to take a side either way, I just don't know why you trust the 'owner's manual' way so much.

I wonder if it was when he posted a picture of "his" motorcycle. I jokingly (I thought) replied, "Nice bike. Whose is it?" Then someone found out the pic was from another website. The jet of coffee from my nose was so powerful it punched a hole in my monitor.

Well, looks like everyone is still watching the in-progress remake of that old Alfred Hitch***** movie, "The Man Who Wasn't There".

"I just don't know why you trust the 'owner's manual' way so much. "

My wife says I am a follow the rules sort of guy (Morons would disagree right).. I was the good kid oldest son voted "Mr Responsible" in high school...



Also, and more important, is having gone to college with Mechanical Engineers, where the first two years of the engineering curriculum are essentially the same, I have a lot of faith in those guys..MEs in genera are more down to earth and practical than Electrical Engineers.. Electrical Engineering as you would expect is more abstract ... I almost went Mechanical but I loved the math in EE..

Default Re: Engine Break-In

The few manuals i have read actually support the method on the website, if you read between the lines.



The same points are shared.

1. Let the bike warm up first

2. Don't run up to redline

3. Don't ride long distances at the same rpm range





That guy is just saying "load" the engine. Not run it to redline. Use engine braking and heavy throttle to break in the rings. Sounds rather logical to me...

Actually it was the oil changing post, helmet laws and of course...



But you could swap out any of the 3 with a harley/buell debate.
