That's been my theory for a while now, break em in hard.

Since I've been able to afford new bikes and sell them when the warranty expires that's exactly what I've done, but I've never had a problem anyway.

Good video.

I have been involved in this discussion many times over the years.
I understand all the perceived performance gains associated with hard break in.
Racing motors are usually used as an example.
There probably is some merit with this method. I dont know.
And because I dont know...
I go with what the engineers who built the machine recommend.

You should remember that its peace of mind youre after and not just a fixed machine.

What's interesting about the video is that they show it doesn't matter which method you use the result is the same ... give it a watch :)

Opinions are like a$$holes, as much as I respect Ari, I'll stick with the engineers recommendations.

From a mechanical standpoint ....interesting. Not sure I'd want to give any dealership yet another opportunity to squirm out of their warranty obligation though !

Did you or me misinterpreted the video? He said basically that hard break in is not necessary ... infact more harmful on race oriented high redline motors.

Agreed, I tend to trust the people who specced the materials and built the thing in the first place .
