Warm up?

Hello,

What's this entry in the manual about starting that say that a cold engine needs to be warmed up first (before use)... ?
That's the first time that I read something similar in a motor manual.
(contrary to slow driving to warm the engine up)

Personally I wouldnt over think this...for all my bikes, ive started them and left idling whilst sticking on my helmet and gloves then just ride...

This is what I do, check camera, put on gloves check front door.
Manual does actually say 3 mins but I wait for the first bar of temp to show before setting off and I don't give it any serious beans till I have 3 bars.

3 mins makes perfect sense, just enough time to get oil around the engine before setting off. I don't know anyone who starts their bike last thing before setting off, everyone I know lets their bikes idle for a few mins while they finish getting ready!

I agree w ackack and Martin. its always been the same as with cars and motorcycles. Some show temperature in degrees and some in bars. but u always have to warm them up before u can drive them properly.
and let me tell u my last bike Cbr 954rr needed much longer to be on temp as now Suzi( shes in no time on working temp.)

Drive fast, drive safe!!!! Cheers

Looking forward to letting a bike warm up, currently have a 1996 Bandit 1200 Which is probably the loudest bike in the area and have to start it and ride straight away so as not to upset the neighbours ?

This has only been the case since the internal combustion engine was invented...

Rod bacon that was great .. the life of any engine depends on proper warm up .just like a Human would do at the gym before pushing the limits. You warm up for circulation and you strech not to dislocate anything. Engines warm for circulation and stretch out to proper clearances

I picked up my bike yesterday at the dealer and only let it sit for about 30 seconds after its 6 month nap, went to take off and it died. Even the extra gas when letting the clutch out couldn't save it. First time I stalled this bike.

I'll be letting it warm up from now on, lol. I was just too eager to get her going.

car experts tell you to start car up and drive ...if its freezing just go build up speed slow....i can get going down the road at speeds with very low rpm....air cooled bikes same thing......water cooled bike takes a bit longer to warn up...but i dont think id have a problem pulling away cold on the s...with the high compression better to warn a bit
