@Techpill
Hard break ins are a meme and a terrible idea. Not redlining your bike before your first service is not a meme and will help with a good wear pattern. Say what you want about dealers but my trusted one tells me not to even go into high RPMs or the highway before that first service, and when you collect on warranty that when the first service was will be the first thing theyll call you out on. 600 miles is first service.

I can guarantee you those squids buying a brand new literbike and revbombing it everywhere to show off infront of their friends are fucking things up.

One thing is though engines are partially broken in at the factory. Some during testing but its far better than in the past like when they used to use release compounds on tire moulds. Scrubbing in your tires is more of a meme than anything. And twist of the wrist will debunk a lot of riding memes.

So I changed the oil and filter on my CB400SF, used Motuo 7100 10W40. Went for a ride and now my clutch is slipping.
When I try to up shift at a high rpm (10k-11k), after I release the clutch it's as if I still have my hand half on the clutch for about a second. Is this normal after an oil change? I never noticed slippage before I changed the oil.

Why bother buying a Ural without a side-car? Surely you could find a better solo option.

Either that or tow it with an old Goldwing.

@Stark_Naked
$11,000 quality bike made in Japan
$6,000 pajeet bike made out of recycled metals in some place where they don't even poo in the loo

It's a comparison because the cb400sf should not handle better, have better brakes, better suspension that is adjustable, be more powerful and have a higher top speed than the cbr500.

Just shows how much Honda cares about innovation these days when a bike they designed 20+ years ago is better in every way than a "sport bike" that is 100cc higher capacity.

The 500 makes MORE torque LOWER in the power band as well as nearly the same power as the 400.
An extra $5,000 isn't worth 28ftlb @9500rpm. Its ridiculous.
Not to mention the 400 has dual rear shocks (meme) and is heavier.

BunnyJinx

@SniperWish
You're forgetting a few things about this "ridabilty" meme:
Where gearing puts you in the powerband
How close or distant your gears are, appropriate to the breadth of the powerband
How many revs you have to work with in either direction
How much torque you need, the main factor for powerband usability. Having more torque than you need will just jerk you around and spin the wheel. Are you towing shit with your CB(R)500 or something? Do you weigh 400lbs?

I used to ride a twin with more torque lower in the powerband myself. Going to a 600, I didn't feel like I missed anything because I just stayed higher in the rev range. This wasn't a problem because the 600 was built better and vibrated significantly less, and had literally twice the rev range to work with, so I was actually shifting less often.

the 400 is a practical ujm, it has duel rear shocks to make room for storage space under the seat.
you faggots always complain about no storage space but when a company actually gives it to you then you complain about dual shocks without understanding that they work fine, better than a lot of mono shocks in fact.

form follows function

there is an ideal shape for all-around aerodynamics on a circuit racer.
there is an ideal way to shave weight off a design while improving speed and handling.
there aren't a lot of ways to put ram air intakes on a bike
there is an ideal rider position because the 100-200lb ballast that controls the bike is important. things like the thin seats that point up come from this and the last point.
there is an ideal way to place the engine and all the accessories in the frame, even if it's an ugly lump of metal and tubes straight outta HR geiger instead of a spread out air cooled art piece.
there is an ideal way to design the frame that holds the engine
etc

@Playboyize
better than mono shocks
shock imbalances
less suspension travel
nah
you can have a monoshock and underseat storage. if you disagree with this you have never actually seen the rear suspension of a modern bike. the linkage and shock hook up with the rest of the bike very close to the frame and very low to the ground.

what's actually killing underseat storage is center-up meme exhausts (muh balance, muh clearance!) and thin subframes (combined weight savings and cost savings. less material to use, fewer assemblies to bolt together, better benchracer numbers and lower prices for everyone)

Same height, KLR is my first bike. You are adding extra challenge to learning right off the bat by getting something so tall and top heavy.
It took me a good 2 weeks of riding every day to fully get comfortable with the bike and taking off on an uphill is still a challenge. The bike will take great care of you and the size of it feels REALLY good when you're actually riding. Super smooth on the road and the long suspension eats up anything you throw at it pretty much. I would only recommend it over a smaller dual sport if you plan on doing much highway and long distance riding though. If you're only going to ride it around town then maybe consider something smaller. I absolutely love my KLR though

I should also add that even if you don't think you will do offroad, just having a bike like this will make you want to. Once you take it out you'll want to take it on some dirt before you put it away. It's a cheap bike too but the aftermarket gets expensive. I already need some engine guards for mine which cost around $400.

One thing about starting on a bike like this is that it forces you to become a better rider sooner rather than later, and once you tame it you will be able to ride anything else with ease.

Bike seems recent enough to allow full synth without taking a beating... What kind if clutch is it, cable or hydrolic?

Gigastrength
Gigastrength

@MPmaster
The old oil was either semi synthetic or non synthetic and now that you are running fully synthetic it is causing the clutch plates to slip because they are lubricated too well.
Let the bike sit overnight then do around gently do around 50km on the bike tomorrow and should come good, If not your clutch plates are fucked.

I'll do this. I don't need to ride for a few days anyway. Really hope the clutch is okay, I don't have the time or money to fix it at the moment.

should be fine, my cb400 did the same thing when i did an oil change on it when i got it.

ZeroReborn

@WebTool
@RumChicken
the clutch plates basically just need to spin the excess oil off them btw, its half way because you are pouring the oil straight onto the clutch combined with the change from semi synthetic to fully synthetic

I like the oil too. The bike is definitely running smoother on it, less vibrations.

I'll report back tomorrow or the day after. I've never felt a clutch slip before, so I started to panic.

So with relatively powerless cars you can still initiate slides by using weight transfer to the front (lift-off oversteer, Scandinavian flick). Is there a way for me to initiate power slides on my 48 hp shitbike?

As long as you've got a rear brake that can lock the wheel, you're good to powerslide

Emberburn

Yes but you would highside trying to do it.
you back it into a corner using the rear brake then dump the clutch mid corner to get the rear wheel spinning.

@Skullbone
Narp. Powerslide = rear wheel is slipping because it's turning faster than the road is moving under it. Locking it with the rear brake does the opposite.

and you are wanting to do it on the road.

Nojokur

@Ignoramus
Highsides on pavement are a little more predictable, especially if you start the slide intentionally. You can always ride the skid out and power through it and hope you either get righted, lowside, or slam into a wall. Can't 'snap oversteer' if the rear never regains traction!

But dirt scares the everloving shit out of me

This is where you start to realise that different types of dirt require different types of dirt tyres which is why dirt bike riders think 50/50 tyres are fucking hilarious, if my 100% off road tyres are shit in some places 50/50 tyres are useless in just about all situations that aren't hard packed dry dirt or rocks.

It hasn't been updated since 2011, a new update is possible but not likely, the 600 class is dying and Euro 4 might be the final nail in the coffin, there's a lot of talk about the big 4 dropping the 600 class and with the GSXR-750 already established Suzuki is more likely to drop it than anyone else.

clutch plates to slip because they are lubricated too well

There are no friction modifiers in motorcycle specific oil that will do this, please stop posting wives tale bullshit. It's not new oil that is causing his clutch to slip, It may be out of adjustment or just plain worn out but it was NOT changing the oil to a syth motorcycle oil.
