Running In
on: March 12, 2020, 05:35:43 PM
Those who have already got their Daytona 765's will have noticed from the handbook or more likely from the big sticker on the fuel tank, these bikes seem to have a very strict and unusually long and restrictive Running In process, I can only assume that this is due to the fairly exotic engine internals for a road bike.
Essentially a near race bike engine but expected to run for 6000 mile service intervals and may be 50000 miles of more over many years  :169:

My bike seems to have been set up at the dealer to show the running in Rev limits on the Dash which is rather smart  :028: and I guess all or at least most bikes should be set up like this ?

The first 100 miles are fairly tough at a rev limit of only 3500, and being a low geared bike only allows up to around 40mph in 6th gear. You can of course exceed this and there is nothing to physically stop you doing this, but the Rev counter on the dash does turn red as you get to this limit set point.

I managed to get a few more miles on my bike yesterday and was looking to get over the 100 miles mark thinking that I would then need to work out how to reset the Dash for a new warning limit of 5000 rpm for the next 200 miles as per the running in guide.
However exactly on 100 miles I was very pleased to notice 2 things,
1) the dash is smart enough to be fully programmed so that the Red warning has automatically moved up to 5000 rpm  :062:
2) the extra revs to 5000 have greatly improved the riding experience, max speed is only just about 60mph but that makes a huge difference on any decent roads and you can now get a much better sense of the engine as it pulls so much better with the slightly higher revs.
I'm really looking forward to more miles and so more revs  :047:

Good report Jay.

I am now convinced mine wasn't set at dealership. I've had no red flashing lights and nothing different after 100 miles. :013:

Currently on about 240 miles, but bike is self-isolating and SORNed becasue it might have infected Pirelli tyres. :087:

Yes I noticed my tyres say "Super Corona's" I best move it way from the other bikes and cover it in hand sanitiser (if I could get any  :138:)

Great ride down to the coast last Saturday (whilst we still can  :003:)
Over 200 miles on the bike now so getting there  :028:

Bike feels great and with a bit of care and planning you can still overtake a few cars out of the bends whilst staying below 5000 (ish) RPM  :062:

The lowish running in speeds per revs ( low gearing )might have the added benefit of better wheelies as demonstrated in the video link that was posted  :047:
The reason I swapped my S1000RR for one of these was to try to remain out of jail. I know wheelies are also seen as worse than most crimes you can think off.... :020:

Just wondering if everyone has been able to access their menu during break in? Iíve not yet had my first service and the Home button does zip all.

Wondering if anyone else has experienced this (or if itís normal during run in period etc)?

I havenít tried disconnecting the battery - as Iím pretty sure that will reset my clock, date etc and I might not be able to get them back!

Hmmm... Oh well, not far off the first service... Guess I can just put up with it until then!    :084:

The "strict break in" is pretty similar to other bikes from triumph. I personally have never followed the break in intervals on the stickers. I ride the bike normally and focus mainly on varying my RPM, not hitting redline, and shifting a lot. Regarding the break in tac lights. It is an option that you can enable or disable as well as adjust your shift light to whichever RPM you choose.
