Up to 1000 km
During the first 1000 km, keep an eye on the revolution
meter. The indicator must not exceed:
5500-6000 rpm.
During the first hours of riding, it is advisable to run the
engine at varying load and rpm, though still within
recommended limit. To this end, roads with plenty of
bends and even hilly areas are ideal for a most efficient
running-in of engine, brakes and suspensions.
For the first 100 km, use the brakes gently. Do not brake
violently or keep brake applied for too long. This will
enable a correct break-in of friction material on brake
pads against brake discs.
For all mechanical moving parts to adapt to one another
and above all not to adversely affect the life of basic
engine parts, it is advisable to avoid harsh accelerations
and not to run the engine at high rpm for too long,
especially uphill.
Furthermore, the drive chain should be inspected
frequently. Lubricate as required.
From 1000 to 2500 km
At this point, you can squeeze some more power out of
your engine, being careful, however, to never exceed
7000 rpm.
