Some interesting reading on new engines and its performance


Hi all. I found this guys blog on the net and have been reading it for a while now. He talks about running in new engines and the techniques they use at the factory.
Theres alot of stuff here and its mainly aimed at motorbikes but still good none the less.

I like when people like this go against the grain of the big guys and reveal their secrets.
 Start from isssue one at the bottom onwards

Re:


First read that many years ago.
I didn't even have to look at the website, i remember the link.

Followed it to a tee when a got a new 600RR in 2004.
Hard on the power, lots of engine braking etc. It had less than 30km (yes, 30km not 30,000) on the clock and i wound it up to 15,000 rpm @ full load a few times. Got home, changed the oil and filter (to dino/mineral oil). The junk that came out was amazing. Looked like metallic oil.
Changed to Silkolene synth @ 1,000km.

The bike ran flawlessly for the next 18 months until i sold it. They guy who bought it got another 2 flawless years out of it before he moved on.

I believe in the procedure so much that i ran in every subsequent new vehicle i bought the same. 2 bikes, 2 cars (xtrail included) and 3 work cars.

As i said in a previous post, as to why manufactures don't recommend this... can you imagine the carnage on the roads of people gunning it in unfamiliar vehicles?
