heat cycle ??????

Recommended Posts

I have always been told that cast pistons are fine with the break in method suggested in the manual and that forged pistons require heat cycles to break in. I just rebuilt my top end with my first forged piston (Wiseco) and broke it in using heat cycles just to be "safe". Here is a link to the heat cycles I used. Came from pingertalk.com and my bike is running well, great compression etc. Hope it helps;

ide say its good to get your bike warmed up after a new top end.. warm it for a while at lower varying rpms on a stand.. or w/e.. and then work your way up to high rpms after about 10 min.. and take a nice soft ride in a field.. low rpms with a big load.. and just accelerate, slow down, accel, decel for about 15 min.. rev it up a few times.. and go see how it runs!!!
