Why???

Recommended Posts

Also when running in an ehngine, you should not ride at a constant speed. I was told by an old hand, just periodically step off to allow for better oil circulation. At constant speed you may end up with steady oil streams inside the engine, and some parts may go under lubricated.

Basically not to overstress the engine. When the engine is new' date=' the bedding in process takes place during the first few thousand kilometres which is why it is essential to take care of the engine when its new.

  Yes, basically the engine parts mate when new and get used to the mechanical process. The new piston, piston rings and engine block mate with one another and hence any overstraining may cause engine seizure. As a result there's a lot of metal powder in the new engine's oil when drained. oil changes also have to be at quicker intervals for new engines. This is called the running in period.  Thats true for any engine that is new or has been newly overhauled.

Only the quality has improved tremendously over the past few years. So you can rev higher when new, and do not have the extreme early running in. Also, I hear from people who put a magnetic drain plug that the amount of kerf picked up by the magnet in a new engine is an eye opener.
