1st question:I'm trying very hard to follow the run-in instructions but something doesn't make much sense so I have a question. The manual says I shouldn't run more than 1/4 throttle, no more than 35 mph, and whatever I do I must not "lug" the motor. My question is this: If the purpose of the run-in is to run at relatively low rpm to wear in the parts without overheating, why the 35 mph limit? When I run 35 mph I'm running 4th gear at low rpm. At the same rpm in 5th I would be doing about 50 mph. So, why the speed limit if it would be the same rpm?2nd question:The manual also suggests re-torqueing the head at 500km. Is that intended for the iron classic only or the aluminum also? I know in my former Harley days, I needed to re-torque the heads on the old ironheads and Shovelheads but it was a big no-no for the aluminum Evo motors.
