Thinking about building a secret passage between the bedroom and the garage. :smoking: Hope the wife doesn't find it! :laughing:agusta01 said:What a great post...takes me back to when I picked mine up....but then again, I still sneek into garage for a quick look....
Odonata, I am going to the 2 day camp. I can't wait. BTW, the brakes are not a problem at all. Just seem less powerful than the Brembos. I wonder why MV went with the Nissin given the Brembos are made in Italy.odonata said:you mean you don't sleep in the garage next to it? :toothless just teasing.
I am looking forward to the day I have the Senna in my garage...
congrats on the new bike, Anucci, I have ridden the 910 and loved riding it, maybe 1 day I will also have it in my garage... btw I didn't find the brakes to be a problem... after all the tires, pads+rotor on your bike are not even totally broken in yet.
Here is an article about "breaking in th engine", thought that you might find it interesting.
The CSS is a great place to learn, are you going to the 2 day camp or just a 1 day course?
Airfuel and Onodata, thanks for the break-in input. Very interesting. I just read the same fact in the MC garage section of this month's Mototcyclist magazine. They ran an article on "new bike prep". The mechanic said you want to put a good load on the motor and generate heat in order to seat the piston rings. It's ok to rev it hard, just don't keep it at steady throttle and don't let it idle.airfuel said:Glad you and your new baby are safe at home Anucci, great start!
I took CSS (Keith Code) last year and thought it was well worth it. I hope to do more this year.
Also, a few people I know are planning a trip to Barber Motorsport park at the end of Sept. for 2 days of open track. When I come back from my vacation (starting today) I will be looking into this. The chance to ride that super track with a 910R and the great museum sounds like a great trip!
As for breaking in new engines, I totally agree with the methods of mototuneusa above and this one also: http://motorcycleinfo.calsci.com/NewBike.html#BreakIn
As a dyno owner, I have seen the results of how engines perform with different types of break in methods.
The guys who baby their engines have lower power output and use some oil. The guys who get on the engine from day one have very strong engines.
Just yesterday I broke in (on the dyno) a brand new BMW K1200R for a guy who will be racing this bike . I used Mototunes method and he is very happy so far with the results.
Controversial subject for sure, but I see this stuff everyday.
Yep, count me in for a Connecticut ride. I look forward to meeting the good folks on this forum. Looks like the weather is turning colder again this week. Maybe in a couple of weeks. I just added my bike to the registry so as soon as admin approves they will be up.cdamb said:anucci the best of luck with your new bike.I was at Motofixx on friday and saw your bike was down off the platform and knew it wasn`t long. I`m all for a Ct Agusta ride. I too took a strole on saterday, way too much sand on the roads perhaps a good downpour will take care of that.
Secret passage....maybe part of the renovations you have planned???
