Thanks Penfold... will do. I have opened her up a little and it's funny how you can feel the difference in the mechanics after it's broken in compared to when it's not. It seems as if it wants it now, which I am in the mood to give it what she wants. So, in keeping in safe measure, I will take advantage of this week of warm weather... thanks...
nope... I just don't run mine very hard. I didn't in the first place. And... X, if I had a leak then, wouldn't it be worse now? HAHA, yes yes. But, anyways, I take it to about 10 or so once a ride, but other than that I shift at around 6-8 thou. So, I'm getting good gas. And I cruise at around 4000 to 5000 rpm, so I don't run it very hard when cruising. I bet that's most of your guys' problems... cruising around town at like above six. I know they can do it fine, but I choose to have the gas mileage. And if you're tempted to say "You're bogging down your motor" don't, because I'm not and I know what that feels like. Any other suggestions though of why that might be bad (cruising at 4-5 thou RPM), I'd be all ears. And even then, I can still crank it at anytime, and leave behind anyone I want to (other than exotics and alike). So, I'm content with both... cruising and the mileage.
The engine was made to redline at 15,500 running it at low rpm's all the time will carbon up your engine and then it will run shitty and you will have to have it cleaned out. I personally don't ever run lower than 7,000 in traffic because if anything happens where I need to get out fast I want to be as close to the power as possible. Just my .2 take it for what you will
Hey JL, I never heard of carbon build up when you dont redline your engine? Is this true for all engines? if you could go in more dept about this topic, i on behalf of everyone else would surely like to know.
go on and educate!
