What did the PEC say about break In?
One of the folks at the PEC who shall remain nameless will not confirm nor deny that he MIGHT agree with what the guys at my dealership, Emm and Pedidoc said:I was told that the stroke increases at higher rpms and that when you break it in you need to go higher rpms to seat the piston in the cylinder correctly.
- Not necessary to go the full 2000km recommended in the manual, that 1000 miles is enough
- Stay under 4000 rpm's for the first 500 miles
- Take it to redline after 500 miles, but do it gently. No putting your foot into it. He MIGHT have agreed with the picture I drew of the athete going through his full range of motion, but doing so in a deliberate and gradual manner
