What will happen if I ride my new bike at a faster speed before its first service?
Theoretically, driving a new bike at a higher speed before the first service is not going to affect your bike engine. But when we take the practical scenario higher speed may have some impact on the new bike engine.
The main reason why manufacturers generally advise not to drive a new bike at a higher speed during the first 500- 800kms, is that all the components of the engine of a new bike are newly fitted; they are not exposed to the strain and stress conditions developed during high-speed driving and any sudden changes in the said conditions for the bike’s parts may lead to early failure.
Riding long distances before the first service of a bike could harm your engine and components due to high heat and stress.
Hence, one must expose the parts of a new bike to the gradually increasing stress and strain conditions. This is possible only when the bike is drown at optimum speed before first service and engine components would be exposed to and used for all kinds of tortures. Subsequently, it will improve the smoothness and efficiency of the bike.
