Hey folks i am on day 3 with the new bike and wanted to see how much i should be pushing it for now,it has 150kms on it thus far probably more before get to read feedback.
of courseCool so i went out today for a bit and gave it a bit more observing all speed limits...
best i could but a few highway entrys at near full flog and it is a different toy at 10k,being a "learner"rider i am "restricted"to 90kph"...
hehe... but i did observe the laws
great page on the ins and outs of break ins and how to get yourself peak power!What's The Best Way To Break-In A New Engine ?? The Short Answer: Run it Hard !
Nowadays, the piston ring seal is really what the break in process is all about. Contrary to popular belief, piston rings don't seal the combustio pressure by spring tension. Ring tension is necessary only to "scrape" the oil to prevent it from entering the combustion chamber.
If you think about it, the ring exerts maybe 5-10 lbs of spring tension against the cylinder wall ...
How can such a small amount of spring tension seal against thousands of
PSI (Pounds Per Square Inch) of combustion pressure ?? Of course it can't.
How Do Rings Seal Against Tremendous Combustion Pressure ??
From the actual gas pressure itself !! It passes over the top of the ring, and gets behind it to force it outward against the cylinder wall. The problem is that new rings are far from perfect and they must be worn in quite a bit in order to completely seal all the way around the bore. If the gas pressure is strong enough during the engine's first miles of operation (open that throttle !!!), then the entire ring will wear into the cylinder surface, to seal the combustion pressure as well as possible.
the only bad thing during break in is lugging..... everyone knows the best way is to bang that ***** off the headboard ahahaaI stuck mostly with what Honda recommends, nothing to crazy for the first couple hundred miles or so. After a hundred I brought it up into the high RPM range, but not a lot. Not an expert, but I'm going to assume either method won't create any remotely significant difference in engine output. The break in on my 13 Accord was easy, all you really need to worry about are the brakes (if you want).
That's my mentality. I know automotive engine design has come a long way, not sure about motorcycle engines, but for most mass produced vehicles break-in periods aren't nearly as important as they once were. Idiot proof some might say.It never hurts to go about it how they recommend you do, after all they are the one's who made the bike and it's engine
