guys, what do you think?

 

Hard break-in or slow run-in?

 

I'm thinking of doing the hard break-in on the dyno for the first 37km then do a slow run-in for the next 2400km

 

Any comments?

hard run in = for performance

 

normal run in = better fuel efficiency, engine will last longer

 

when u getting ur bike?

haha

here's the good news.

Its here.

Saw my baby at the shop

Most prolly next week.

 

Based on what you said, am I right to state a hard-run in will not help in allowing the engine to stay healthy?

I'm intending to keep the bike very long. Performance is attractive but I'm concentrating on fuel economy instead.

A shop in Eunos.

I dun want to publicize it here. PM me if you want details.

The 600 has arrived. I can pick it up today, especially when my corruption money came into my account today. *blink blink* But I'll prolly pick it up next week as I wanna get it in May. Kinda bad timing as its been raining daily.

 

The bike is at the shop. They took in black & silver. They have a red available which I wanted, but they seriously adviced me to give it a miss as the red was supposedly ugly.

 

Seen other shops display it too. Saw it at Hong Nam this noon (Lavender along Minerva there).

 

Jerry,

fuel efficiency is one thing. But has it been confirmed hard run-in increases FC?

Thought the main purpose is to allow proper sealing of the rings, thus improving piston output efficiency.

Also, why the idea that hard run-in lowers the engine lifespan?

No wanting to start anything. Rather curious and still wants to research before deciding which path to go for my new bike.

My wife and I chose red coz my last bike was already black.

But they told me the red was the suzuki butt-ugly red, unlike the deep Duc red or Honda red.

So LPPL, decided to choose black again coz most of my gear is already black...

 

No word on side boxes. I wanted to get it as part of the loan, but decided no budget for now. Maybe I'm gonna a cheap 2nd-hand side bags for the moment.

 

BTW, GPR has released aftermarket end-cans for the GSR.

Knowing GPR, they make great cans at dirt-cheap prices...

hard run in sometimes does not improve FC..... it onli condition the bike for hard wacking..... imagine how hard ur engine works during a track session or at a makan trip blast off....

 

its oso depends on how "hard" u run in and the method u use......

well, thinking of using the MotoTune method.

Run in on a dyno, followed by soft riding for the next 2400km with regular oil-changes.

Tats why I did not go for the 400.

Its not confirmed, its not an agent bike, its price is just 1-2 short of a 600 price.

Plus the engine is an unknown while the 600 uses a race-proven 600 engine already in the market.

 

Anywayz, I decided to go for the Mototune method. Re-read the entire webbie and spoke to a fren who has done it on his 3-yr old K3. Think I saw where the misconception abt hard break-in lies.

The misconception is tat the Mototune method is to whack redline immediately after receiving the bike, which is wrong.

I've re-read the page over & over again many times and realized that he's not advicing ppl to do that. Rather its a methodical process spread over a range of RPMs and throttle.

From the theoretical point of view, it should help in prolonging engine life. Thus, my choice.

 

Anywayz, mine wun be red. The red is the Suzuki butt-ugly red.

So I brought my wife over yesterday afternoon the the shop and she chose black.

Perfect...
