B1 rep running in tips.

I’ve got an MT-A4 b1 rep brand new and was wondering if anybody has tips on running it in? I don’t want to blast on it full revs but you need to pretty much be there for the clutch to engage. I’ve left it it ticking over in intervals as much as I can atm which isn’t often. Occasional revving it wel below where the clutch engages and sometimes spin the wheel a bit at 3/4 revs.

Those are fast reving engines they need the RPM to keep the water moving you can't be scared to ride it to break it in after 3 or 4 heat cycles

Don't forget to drain the water at the end of the day and spary a bunch of silicone in the engine then leave the hoses off so any moisture can evaporate out store your bike indoors or at room temperature

Check your water pump belt before you ride...

Faster then a speeding E Revo

Why would you tell him to do this?

Do you know theres a technical way to fill the coolant?

One mess-up from a missed step and the engine could get toasted..

Maybe he should just listen to the Blata manual...…..I never drain my Polini.

I also put waterpump lube in the water to inhibit corrosion...Its 100% water soluable and environmentally safe..……..



And I quote:





Seeings R/V antifreeze it watertank safe in R/V's its 100% safe to use as a coolant especially at a race track...

Only things I drain after each use are the tanks on my compressors and the pumps on my pressure washers..Thats because I have Fitch in my fueltanks…....LOL

Are you an expert?

Read the non-use and storage part again[3rd part].....It states what to do with that if storing more than 90 days....

Like I said "Read the manual".It literally takes 10 minutes and saves you a ton of guesswork and headaches....

I will say though...Instead of using motor oil I use "Engine Fogging Oil"

I also use it even when short term storaging too...……..

I’m talking about running it in, not storing it. It’s a brand new engine, I don’t want to full rev the life out of it and blow it up.

Also read the manual that came with the bike front to back as well as the original Blata one online.

Did you know that's covered in the manual too...……………..

And chances are you could've already done engine damage seeings you already stated that the clutch engages way after 3/4 throttle which to me makes that statement kind of redundant...

I really don't know how to say what the experts say to do differently so it can be understood any easier...…….

What I’m getting at is for the bike to actually go anywhere I pretty much have to full rev it so I’m shying away from riding it atm. Should I try and ride it just keep it a few thousand revs away from full?

Once you bring the bike up to speed you will feal when the clutch locks it takes some RPMs on those they start making power at 8K it's like a sport bike you have to embrace the revs... Like riding the ninja to work looking at the rpms being like why do you got to be like that lmao then you get off work it's like YEA!!!!

The manual says don't try and go slow and over heat the bike

But don't go out and do speed runs...

So cone off a track with lots of turns and no real straight

Or bring it to the track and just let people pass you on the straight until your finished with your break in tanks

I have let some people ride my pocket bike and they are scared of it I'm like dude you have to give it to it your killing my clutch then they try to go slow again I'm like no your not allowed to ride it anymore
Then others I'm like LOL you gona die 🙂 take it around a few laps

Thanks for the straight answer mate. I know what you mean, my r6 drives me mad when I’m in rush hour but come the time I ain’t got nowhere to be, I’m in heaven lol! Think I’m just gonna get it to a go kart track either this weekend or next. Just run it in there. 2nd time going I’ll be able to give it the bollocks all the way round.

First of all you should measure your clutch engaging rpms and set it from 8000-8500rpm. And control if there are all three arms engage at the same time. Normaly it's enough when you run the engine 4 or 5 times on temperature and let it cool down for run in.
