Hi all,
I am still running in my new Springfield but was very impressed with the first 350Kms.
I am following the manual and the dealers advice regarding the running in but would be interested in other opinions here.
Thanks in advance.

My run-in was all sorts of varied revs and load and never constant for very long, as well as engine braking.

I rode my Chief Vintage back to Alice Springs from Darwin as a run in.  Basically, for the first 600kms or so I didn't hit it hard, didn't stay too long on one speed & varied my speeds. (it got up to 42C on the way back, the weather that is & it made it a very warm ride).  I haven't had any problems since then with the motor, so it must have worked.  Ride it normal but don't flog it or leave it on one speed too long.

I Can Be Used As A Bad Example!
