View Full Version : warming up
09-05-2003, 07:29 AM
my bike seems to take ages to warm up how long does it take for yours to hit 40 as my bike seems to only go up 33 when ticking over and ive been told to wait till 40 but itl never reach it just ticking over? im taking the temp reading is the temp ov the water in the radiator as it say TH2o on the digi dash and how the hell does the lap counter function

i read on 1 website that if u leave the bike ticking over for 2 long so it is realy warm can be bad in cold weather cuz if its sat there all nice and warm and then u 1st pull of the higher revs suck in lots more cold air hurting the cylinder its called cold seizer i do belive what water temp do u normaly pull of on?and how long approx does it normaly take?

the temp on the display is the temperature of the coolant in the engine, takes a couple of minutes to get up to 40 degress give it a bit of revs as well dude

i tend to just start my biek with the choke, then turn it off afta 30secs and it warms up nicely...

Same here crunch, my bike takes no time at all to get to 40.
perhaps a couple of mins at most.

do u use the choke jenko..
do u give it a small amount of throttle?

I just start the engine and ride straight off, taking it easy (keeping below about 5000) until it is properly up to temperature.
Running for ages with the choke on is not a good idea. The extra fuel will wash the oil off the bearings and the bore.
All the best

I havent been using the choke for a few weeks to start my bike, it just starts first time everytime i usally let it get to around 35 then give it a bit of throttle takes another 4 or so mins to warm it to 50 then i ride off

If my bike is freezin cold and been left for a few days I just put the choke on full and it starts perfectly. Leave the choke on till 30c then take it off and give it a bit of revs.. it'll idle nicly then and will get to 45 in about a minute, then just keep it out of the powerband till its running about 75c then if i get the urge rag her :)

i have been out on a good run but the temp never goes above 50? and if i come to a stop for a short while it shoot rite back down im wondering if summat is wrong with my bike
09-06-2003, 11:22 AM
i tried startin off at 40 but it wouldnt idle propa so i put the choke thing down and reved it a bit till 55 and it was fine no spluttering
09-06-2003, 09:19 PM
now ive had my engine fully rebulided, im leaving it to 70`C now...
although i cant go above 5k - 6k rpm i anit risking it..
however, when i treid to start it ealrier..
just got bk form garage..
bike feels very rusty..aka brand new feeling...
hope its all gud

i don't ride off at all until the bike is at 50c,some people ride off at 40c,i don't spose it make that much difference.but i won't go above 8000rpm til its at 70c,doesn't take too long to 50c,kwik fag until put lid on and shes there,takes 'bout 5mins from 50-70c once moving
