Me, too. I do my pre-flight checks, then sit down and start it up. While it's running I'm putting on my gear.TrashMonkey said:Like ninjagirl, I do the same thing, I start my bike and let it warm up while I get my gear on.
Oh, my God! You hit 6k RPM? Your engine is toast. You'd better sell that bike quick to the first bidder before it seizes.d0hnj0e said:but does the 0-800km 5k rpm max really make a difference compared to the 800-1000km 6k rpms max?
I think I hit 6k rpms once for about 2 seconds.
My whole thing is I don't want to destroy my engine.
Okay, I'm kidding. You're fine. Just relax. Don't worry so much. I think respecting Kawasaki's recommendation during break in is important, but I really doubt that a little over will do much, if any harm.
I think what will make a much bigger difference is getting good oil and changing it regularly.
