BigBore be ready to wipe your shorts when the big 1000 miles arrive and you can rev that baby all the way to redline. It took me about 6 weeks to fully break her in. Be patient, happy days ahead.

I couldn't wait to open my 109 up and thats what I've been doing since day one.On the way home from the dealer I did 105 while making a pass. I now have 2700 miles on it and I've never babied it.The only problem I've had is 2 flat rear tires one was At 70 mph, and it's cost me 350$$ so far. I have had it over 130 and had to slow it down due to nerves,so enjoy riding and do what you gotta do its a choice we all had to make and everybody's different.

Never once worried about how I rode my M. Pretty much hammered it from mile 1. I showed her who is boss. Not like the Mrs.

BigBore Biker,

Where do you live in Illinois? The reason I ask you is because I came from ILL. I dont know if you know where Litchfield is but that is my old home town & where I went to High School! Currently, I live in STL.

The sales guy told me to hammer it from the git-go. He claimed that he builds race bikes on the side and has broken bikes in as recommended and hard from the start on a dyno. He claimed that he consitantly gets 10 more horses out of the bikes that he brakes in hard.

I read an article on the effect of 'manufacturer run in sequence' compared with 'warm it up and ride it how you will be going to ride it'....and what this did to the motor!
There were pistons (purportedly) from motors run in both ways..the 'pampered' manufacturer recommended run pistons had 'blow by' because of the rings not bedding ...the "give it death" pistons looked clean and perfect.
I allways try to 'work' my new engines to get the best bedding of the rings..never had a problem.
Get it warm and lubed and straight into it..give the motor a lot of different load situations and just don't try to get up near the red line till it is freed up a little. :bigthumbsup:

I was all over the loud handle like a drunk on free peanuts. Left the stealer sideways and never looked back. I don't give a hoot about civility when I am riding.

Here is the article I believe you are referring to. A great read even if you cotton to the timid when it comes to break-in procedures. My own thoughts are break-in methods are written more by company lawyers than tuners. I've done this with every 4-stroke motor I've ever had, and had GREAT results. Use at your own risk of course - posted for entertainment purposes only :)

I don't buy this guy.

Try Rob Muzzy's procedure instead.

Hi LTrain,
I've looked but can't find much except most of his engines are run in on a dyno..please tell me what he recommends!...I am impressed by Muzzy exhausts performance, so the guy knows something that is worth listening to! cheers, Greg

Yes, this breaking is wearing me out too...but I do subscribe to the theory that you warm it up and then drive it like you stole it...but I remember that it is mine and keep from trying to blow it up...
