Default breakin process

I have read a million diferent things, and know what triumph recommends, I also know the salesman told me not to worry to much about it, just dont go full throttle.

So what is your breakin process and do you feel it was harmful to your bike?

Its definitely been discussed a thousand times, but I will show you a few examples of different ways to go..

A) Go by Triumphs' recommendations, its a slow tedious process.. but helps you learn the bike before you get yourself in trouble which is a perk.

B) Take it easy the first few hundred miles and then don't give a damn

C) Buy the bike, take it to the race track.. and have at it!


Choose A, B, or C.. you will always reach the same destination.

ride it hard don't beat on it, no full throttle or extended throttle. Change gears often and engine break often. i have a little section in my town that has some great twistiest with little to no traffic I broken in my Daytona there so I've been taking my Streety there as well.

Id agree with boz, dont go easy but nothing crazy either. Dont forget compression (letting it coast in gear) is as important to the break in as going up through the gears.

Oh and search there are 487 threads on break in.!

E) Take it to a dyno and break it in the "motoman" method.

Actually the "break in secrets by motoman" was a topic in this month triumph675.net newsletter. Here is the link to his website:

Dyno is one of the ways but taking the bike to the racetrack (option "C" by John and option#3 by motoman) is still the most affordable by many and the most fun!

Damn straight!!! If I get a new D675r or an MV Agusta F3 in the distant future, that's how it's going to be broken in
