Hello I purchased a brutale 800 last week and am breaking it in. What a wonderful bike!! I was told by one of the service people that normal riding rpm should be around 7000 rpm is that correct? What's the best rpm for fuel economy?
Guess your tech guy just wants you to take the new bike easy so you settle in good. My advice, just warm her up good and ride her hard, you wont do any damage, they are run in at the factory on a dyno, so no harm can be done.I guess fuel economy wasn't the best word to use he said 7000 rpm will get all the junk out of the engine so it's better for engine I suppose I just can't wait to get the first service done so I can see what this thing can do!! Coming off of a 750 cruiser this is a whole new world and loving every bit of it
Hahaha I love it!In all seriousness though, if you want the best fuel consumption then keep it between 4-6000 rpm in each gear, but that's like finding yourself in bed with Scarlett Johansson and pecking her on the cheek and saying "night dear" :laughing:
