Running in
on: August 30, 2013, 05:54:52 AM
Todays the day i get my first new bike, as such ive never had to run a bike in before.
Im assuming i take it easy and dont rev it too  hard, also should i lay off taking a pillion or loading it up with luggage for a few miles (My wifes is as excited about having a new bike as me and weve been invited to go away next weekend).

Any advice welcome.

Paul

It will be fine, the engines are broken in on the bench anyway, just take it steady for a couple of hundred. Just don't labour it at constant revs.

What does it say in the hand book about running in?

Ride it the way you would normally, don't thrash it or labour it, labouring will do more damage than anything else with a new engine
