    I'm still running my bike in and just wondered what you guys did when you were running yours in :?: I have done 230 miles so far, sticking to the 5000 rev limit except for a couple of overtakes ;) then it says from 300 miles to 500 miles to up the revs to 6000, then up to 1000 miles only up to about 8000 i think. I was planning to run it in up until 500 miles, have the servcie and then go for it, cant see the point going 1000 miles running in, what do you think :?:
     
  2. That's what I did mate. My dealer said and I quote "you can now give it the berrys" after he'd done the service.

    There will always be a difference of opinion on this contentious issue judging
    by previous posts but I would say this, Run your bike in the way Triumph advise
    all its owners to do, if you are tempted to thrash the nuts off it before the run in
    ends you may get lucky but if the engine goes bang you've only yourself to
    blame, But then don't take my advice, I haven't spent million of pounds in
    engine research like Triumph :?: :?: :?:

    till u have ur 500mile service the bike is running on running in oil. So after ur 500mile service you should be ok but i would ask your dealer first

    it's a very light oil desinged to put a minamul coating of oil on the contact serface eg piston rings, big end bearings etc so all the sufaces like that bedin nicely

    I didn't baby mine, it had brutal treatment. I bought it at Fowlers in Bristol and I can remember I near wet myself with excitement when they wheeled it out the warehouse. I came back on the M32 (only a few miles from th City Centre) and before I knew it it was at 95. It has never missed a beat, it doesn't burn oil, and it starts first time every time.

    What I don't understand is why you are supposed to run in bikes at all. All modern car engines are run in on a bench, so why are bikes any different?

    car engines are not run in on a bench. If u buy a replacement engine then it will of been hot runin (run for 1hr with no coolant just oil and a cool air blower) for a car so no real need for a runin perioud but with a new car it is better to run in engine.
