Too late now then, i guess. But i will wind it a bit next time i ride her, like she was designed to do!
I agree that being too easy on the engine during break in can/will result in the rings not seating well. Been there, done that in fact.Sonreir said:Try to stay off the brake and let the engine's compression handle it.
4? So you are not talking about your cx anymore?Quintin Snell said:So, if i read correctly, the general idea is to keep in lower gear and ride around revving the hell out of the engine? Totally the opposite of everything ive been told in the past... i will love that, but im sure my neighbourhood will go ballistic!
so, suggestions here,,, the smoke isnt very much, and only on number 2, do i leave it, or pull the motor again and get another set of rings? If so, can i do just the one pot, or do i do all 4? (I made sure all rings werein the right way up, and in the correct order, just in case anyone was wondering...)
Nope, i also have a Gs1000g which i rebuilt, and the number 2 piston still has some intermittent smoking. Not bad, but after that much work, there should be none...datadavid said:4? So you are not talking about your cx anymore?
Leme just say... If you just rebuilt the ZX14... ramp up on the nearest I-? wring it to red through 6th gear your now at a silent cruising speed of about 210MPH... Luckily the bikes computer wunt allow for such fuckery lesst you swapped it out for a race chunkSideswipe said:I always wondered about the 'ideal' break in process - but without any tracks nearby I'd be concerned about running it through very many gears to redline!! :-X
