We bought a new motorbike, a Yamaha Mio 125. Right before the mechanic that pre-flighted the bike let us drive off I asked him…
How many kilometers do we need to go slow for?
My wife then asked him in better Thai – about how slow we need to go and for how many kilometers.
The Yamaha mechanic replied that we needn’t go slow at all – just drive as fast as you want. No break-in period required.
Did we finally reach that point in technology where there is no break-in period needed for a new motorbike? Is Yamaha doing something different than other motorbike manufacturers, or, is this the norm all over now? Or, is our Yamaha mechanic wrong?
When we bought our first Mio back in 2005 we were told to drive under a certain speed for some number of kilometers – can’t remember what the rules were.
Is that out the window now? Anybody know?
We’ve gone under 70kph for the first 200km. Can I max it out now, or ?
