    Thumbs up Proper 'Running' Procedure For New Motorbikes

    Asalam O Alikum,
    As am I, many others also are newbies in the biking world. Many want to learn and many have just 'kick and ride' kind of concept.
    As a learner, I want to know what is the proper way to do 'running' of a new motorbike. Things that are essential to know, important dates, changes or mods or any other point that an new biker should know to get the best out of his/her machine and longevity.

    Thank you.

    Copied from various posters. All credits goes to them, R1 and Chery.

    Pay attention to the following during the break in procedure:
    1- For the first 1000 km keep the engine speed below 6500 rpm in all gears and bike speed must be below 60 km/h and avoid riding at the same speed for a long distance.
    2- Frequently inspect the connecting parts for tightness; tighten brakes, clutch, throttle, chain free play, tyre pressure and engine nut bolts as necessary.
    3- Check whether the bike transmission system and brake system is overheating, if has find out the reason and solve the problem.
    4- Replace the engine oil and clean air filter element every 500 km during break in.
    5- Warm engine up before operating, and limit speed during first 1 ~ 5 kms.
    6- Change the speed as load increased to avoid the engine wear or damage, do not overload the engine.
    7- Avoid hard breaking.

    ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    The main objective should be to stay below or equal to 5.5k RPM. Not saying that this is the best possible way to break in the engine but only telling my experience.

    ==> First 200 kms @ max speed of 40km/h, 5.5K RPM
    ==> 200-500 kms @ max speed of 60km/h, 6.5K RPM(oil change)
    ==> 500-800 kms @ max speed of 90km/h, 7.5K RPM

    ==> 800-1000 kms @ max possible speed that I could get on an open road keeping in mind the safety. (oil change @ 1000kms, tuning, nuts tightened etc)

    All the stages in the run in period, the speed must be kept variating. Do not drive for more than 30-40 minutes without giving a rest to the bike for the first 300 kms.

    ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Turbo lag is like foreplay. You know it's coming. And it's gonna be good.

    Warm your engine on idle for 2-3 mins, then dont exceed 50 km/h for 300 km and 60 km/h for uptill 1000 km. change oil at 300km and then 1000km , dont drag the bike or push to beyond half gear ratio. avoid steep slopes and continous travel. Pilllon riding* dual riding is not recommended. ignore sounds engine or other parts make it will be gone after tunning...... Other than ,all advices wear the helmet as must.

    You're meant to drive at different speeds so engine parts face different type of loads. Drive at 20 for a bit then 40 etc.

    its not a rocket science just ride it slow and gentle till 500 km and change its oil, then change oil at 1000km along with full inspection like tightening nuts and bolts some tuneups, than afterwards just change oil with intervals of 1200km or 1500km and you are good to go.

    I abused my Cg 125 Euro II. When I first got it. Drove like an uncle for the first 300km, after that, started to check top speed, practising wheelies and other stuff. Ended up breaking 3 odo meter cables within 2 months. Done enough Patakhas(backfires) and sold it to a friend for 85,000 after 2 months. It was unregistered so yeah who cared. At least I fun

    what should be the ideal weight to put on new bike?

    so u means to say mr x and mr y bought the same bike at same time from same shop.
    now mr x is 60kg and mr y is 98kg so by the time they reach the house mr y bike will be in bad condition by all aspect as more load is on his bike. and after a month or so he will be selling his bike but mr x bike will be in top nouch condition.
    what should be the ideal weight for a rider to ride a bike?.what do bike manufacture says on their manual?

    really looking for some good answer from anyone.
    as i never rode alone after buying the bike all which i have kept in past 24 years.
