Morning warmup question ?

I have only had my B650 for 3mo. I read in the handbook what it says about startup...to run it a bit b4 riding. I have been waiting till the first temp square lights up. Is this overkill or not enough on a cold morning? What do u do?

Common sense, the least common of the senses.

nah, not really. But I do like to start it up while I get my gear on and ready. Makes me feel like a real boy.

No problem at all if your using good Synthetic Motorcycle Oil in the Engine and Transmission and Synthetic Gear Lube in the Final Drive. You should let it run at least long enough for the oil to get pumped up into the engine and flowing throughout the engine, so a minute at least, two or three if its really cold.

What year did they start to delete them?

Same here, it's fuel injected so no need to wait until the back firing disappears & she idles on her own..

I just baby it & keep it below 140km/hr (90mph for you guys) for the first couple of miles at least untill a couple of bars appear in the temp guage then i get on it.

Whoa!!! What!!!! No Temperature Gauge!!!! Look at it again, press a few buttons. Are you sure???? That is pure craziness if true. The Temp Gauge is so critical to know, because you might loose coolant or have a water pump failure. It is always better to have warning of the Temp rising BEFORE the RADIATOR BOILS OVER AND STEAM IS BLASTING OUT FROM UNDER YOUR LEGS!!!!
Check this below, Bikez says it DOES have a TEMP GAUGE:

On my std 04 model, I fire up the scoot, and let it warm up until the RPMs drop to the idle speed, mine usually starts at
1200/1300 RPM then drops to 1100 RPM at idle, takes a few minutes which is long enough for me to put on my riding gear, helmet, gloves etc...

Happy Riding . . . . .
