Recommended Posts

Man... I am stump... we have been sold the idea of how to break in new engines.. be gentle.. rev slowly etc etc... and then this topic throws everything we have been made to believe and practise out the window...

 

Controversial... but it makes a lot of sense.....

Yup... seems that hard break in is the way to go.... veryone seems to support this method... now doesn't it make you wonder if the distributors are "old tech brain" or some conspiracy to make your motor (car or bike) shite... hahaha

Alvin, I heard u getting G6K6 soon? Welcome to the 600cc club :cheer: Need Kinwei to help u hard break in your engine and ...some say...kantong?

 

By the way, another :thumb: for the hard run in method. My R6's 40,000km engine runs smooth and powerful without consuming any detectable levels of EO at all. Many bikes run in softly do, especially high compression high rev 600cc engines.

interesting feedback... first non-positive one I've come across so far.... I was on another bike and car forum with international members and they all seem to think his method is good..

 

Could you link the sites/threads/forums where others have other comments... would make for interesting reading and pondering...

Hard break in is only for 400cc and above....

 

below 400cc and 2T bikes cannot hard run in.

 

Its a fact.

Who ever wants to believe anything he reads on the net or magazines is their problem. Its good you know the truth. The manufacturer way is the recommended way no whatever hard or soft. I read through the link and it was an extremely misleading article. No manufacturer will ever dare to give warranty for that kind of running in. Gerard... You know why I say that... haha..

It's like breaking the virginity of a virgin girl lah, zniper. :lol: Actually, its the process whereby you whack your bike hard so that your new engine will have more power and less wear and tear in the long run... :thumb:

Why the manufacturer,dont recommend the hard break in,cos if you do the hard run in on the street , it very dangerous,and most likely you break the law by speeding. and even if you do a hard run in, and your bike really got problem, you go back to the manufacturer, i dont think they can tell the different , weather you do the easy break in or the hard way.

 

As for my own research, from wat i found out, a big thank to Unity, i found out that those that did hard break in ,the bike has 1-3 bhp more than those bike that did the easy run in.I am saying both bike is same model and no mod been done to both bike.

Dun forget to change EO early if do hard break-in. Very important. The most inmportant distant is from 0km- 36km. Make sure its done hard and well. Take care.... My is done that way and is real good and powerful.

:thumb: When i did my hard break in after on dyno machine. i change the EO every 200km till i reach 2400km.

No,no, you need to load the engine. with engine break. like on 3rd gear pull to almost red line ,than let go of throttle and let the engine do the braking.

Therfore it migth be very dangerous if you do it on the road,cos the car or object behind you might not know you are slowing down.So i recommend you do it on a dyno machine.
