What is the rev limit for first 1000km?
on: August 07, 2017, 11:22:59 PM
What is the rev limit for the first 1000km? On the dealership they told me it was 6000rpm, but all I read on the internet is 9000rpm? Is this limit necessary? Does the engine need this limit? What happens if I ride above 6000rpm? Please advice

The limit is 9000 rpm and is the easiest way of limiting the power output during the 'running in' period.

To be honest, on decent roads (bends etc)  - it isn't too much of a hindrance. :038:

Bounce it off the limiter.   :008:

I did it a couple of times....great fun.

Seriously, don't baby it.  It loves to be thrashed.

Mines in for its service on Friday, so can't wait to stretch its legs a bit more.
I think the most important thing is to make sure the engine warns up properly & steadily before revving it loads.
It won't hurt it to go to 9k once in a while .
