Running-in recommendations

Maximum rpm
(fig. 52)
Rpm limits to be observed during the running-in period and in
normal use:
1) Up to 1000 km
2) From 1000 to 2500 km
0 ÷ 1.000 Km
1.000 ÷ 2.500 Km
fig. 52
Up to 1000 km
During the first 1000 km, keep an eye on the rev counter. It
should never exceed
5,500-6,000 rpm.
During the first hours of riding, it is advisable to continuously
vary the load on the engine and the rpm, though still keeping
within the above limits.
For this reason, roads with numerous bends and hilly areas
are ideal for running in the engine, brakes and suspension.
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 the friction material on the brake pads
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.
It is also advisable to check the drive chain frequently and
ensure that it is lubricated as required.
From 1000 to 2500 km
At this point, you can ask for more power from the engine,
being careful, however, never to exceed 7,000 rpm.
