"Running in" a new Trophy
« on: February 12, 2013, 09:23:06 pm »
So the question is:- What is the correct way/method/ "to run in" this bike from new.

1. What advice/info were you given from dealer when you collected the bike ?

2. Did that advice given to you make sense, or did you follow your own plan ?

My take on this is that I'll do lot's of mixed riding. Up hills & down hills making sure I get plenty
of gear changes in. Making sure the engine works a tad without overdoing the revs.

Opinions appreciated.

Lots of changes in revs, but subject to the sticker on the tank....   :016:
Don't stick at one speed for ages (no cruise for a while!), the 1000 will soon disappear.

Carefully dose it until the first service. It has running in oils and that is partly why they sound a little tinny. But when its got all the correct juices in RIDE IT LIKE YOU STOLE IT  :821:
