Break in warm up temp

Recommended Posts

Just curious what temp I should let the bike warm up to before I ride. Been kinda cold here so letting it warm up to like 125 then slow riding till 170..is that ok?

@armydude52c, That is pretty much exactly how I have done it since I got my bike. You will be fine.

Fire it up put gloves on ride off gently until the temp comes up
it will warm up quicker and is better for the engine never hammer
a cold engine.

If you don't have to let your car sit and warm up to a certain temp before you drive it you don't have to with a motorcycle either. Besides, if it were critical the manual would tell us to let it sit and warm up before riding. Just don't be hard on it before you've ridden it a few minutes.

Not sure if the bike cares much if is idling or puttering along. Once "Lo" changes to a numerical temp reading, you are good to go..... go easy.
