you're taking the 'breaking in' thing a little too seriously.. you only got 45mph??
MotoGP and the likes aren't built with the same tolerances as our "street bikes". They rebuild after every race. It's best to follow the manual, but damn... change gears or something because 45 mph must be like 7,000 rpm in third gear.nick04R6 said:break in periods are mostly BS. Has anyone ever bought a new car or truck or anything with a motor and been told to keep the rpm below a certain point.
I might be wrong, but I don't think that AMA or Motogp bikes are being broken in the same way, maybe for the first 20-50 miles.(some 2stroke race bike motors are only good for 300-500 before needing a rebuild.) As far as I know, pistons,rings and cylinders all do the same thing, it should not matter what they are used for.
I think that the reason that we have to keep the rpms below a certain point might be for rider safety. Just think how many people go out and buy a 600 or 1000 for their first bike. What do you think would happen if they could hit redline on their first day? With the BS break in period that same guy might learn to control the bike better after 600 miles of slow riding. Just my :2cents
Punk ass. Ha! But what exactly was wrong with my method, other than not following Yamaha's guidelines? Break it in like your gonna ride it right???Karonic said:I think you need to ride it a little harder my friend. I would break it in hard but riding it too soft might be just a bad as our friend's above ^ method. Stick with the method the people who actually made the motor recommeond for it. Really, does it matter though, it think the motors are already broken in from the factory. Why wouldn't they do that, so some idiot could f it up later and make them look bad?
