Directions for use

Running-in recommendations

Maximum rpm (fig. 120)
Rotation speed for running-in period and during standard use
1) up to 1000 km;
2) from 1000 to 2500 km.
Up to 1000 km
During the first 1000 km, keep an eye on the rev counter. It
should never 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 slightly hilly
areas are ideal for a most efficient running-in of engine,
brakes and suspension.
For the first 100 km use the brakes gently. Avoid sudden or
prolonged braking. This will allow the friction material on the
brake pads to bed in against the brake discs.
To allow all the mechanical moving parts in the motorcycle to
adapt to one another, and to avoid shortening the life of the
main engine components, it is advisable to avoid sudden
acceleration and running the engine at high rpm for too long,
especially uphill.
Furthermore, the drive chain should be inspected frequently.
Lubricate as required.
