    Default Driving of new bike at 40Km/h within 1000km

    Hi;

    People say that the new bike should not be driven beyond 40Km/h speed within 1000km of odometer reading. This confuses me as throttle position changes with persons i.e. throttle position would be different with a person having weight 110kg and the other having weight 45kg.

    For example, say a 110kg person is riding new bike and throttle is 5mm open and speed is 40km/h. With same throttle opening (5mm) on same bike when a 45kg person rides, the speed accelerates at 60km/h. So I think control should be for ?throttle? not for speed. What is your opinion?

    In my opinion, the throttle position is not considerable beacuse of the fact that the engine Break-In should be completed by the owner, no matter whats his weight. In this period the load (weight of owner) on engine helps it to break-in to a certain level smoothly on constant weight (of owner) and speed i.e. <40.

    Your question is a bit confusing. Throttle position does not matter you just look at the speedo and maintain 40km/h for the first 400 kilometers. The purpose is to move the engine parts slowly so they get polished.

    Just keep he speed under 40 during break in irrespective of throttle position..If you think you are heavier then you can aswell cruise at 30-35 km/hr ..Avoid doubling

    Going so deep for something so simple doesn't make any sense.

    The simple logic behind doing so is:
    - To warm up the engine parts so that the complete their running cycle to be able to run smoothly
    - To eliminate any kind of friction between moving parts

    You can do that:
    - By not accelerating the bike quickly. (Drive slow and smooth) Doing so will stress the engine which is what we need to avoid.
    - By not over speeding the bike. Keep it under 60 at all times. If its a CD70 then 40 would be appropriate.
    - Avoid putting extra load on the bike because doing so will also stress the engine.

    And 1000 km is kinda exaggerated figure. You should be fine after 200-300 kilometers.
    Riders on the storm ... literally.

    ensure complete break in interval i.e atleast 800-1k..You will see an improvement in your bike's lifetime..Careful and complete break in process is crucial..

    Actually the main reason is to avoid extra stress on engine...

    Its not about the weight but the RPM the engine runs on........ the principle of under 40KM/hr is there to help you break-in your engine properly.......so whether you are 45kg or 110kg......... at 40km on 4th gear the engine RPM will be same no matter what the weight of the rider is. Its about the RPM......not the weight...
