    Do you let your bike warm up. Poll time.

    I really know that I should let it warm up a bit before I tear off into the sunset, but I don't do it as much as I probably should.

    So here is a poll I don't think I've seen : Do you let your bike warm up before you ride?
    There ain't no replacement for displacement

    My ritual is;

    1) Fire up bike

    2) Have a smoke

    3) Gloves and helmet on

    4) Go

    I ALWAYS warm her up, or she's a cranky pain in the ass.

    +1 to what son of lars does.

    It also depends what type of bike you have. My first bike was a Honda 599 which is carbed.

    I usually wait until the temp is about 45-50 before I start riding. I think there have been a couple threads lately about this.

    I warm it up so the throttle response is smooth.
    Others have said to warm it up so the engine seals have time to come up to temp.

    My bike is carbed, so I wait until the temp indicator gives me a 95, and then I'm good to go.

    I wait until I see 50. But isn't it more important to allow the time to lube all the moving parts inside? Or is it the temperature factor also to let the moving parts expand with the heat? All of the above I suspect.

    Maybe that's degrees fahrenheit ... I hope so anyway.

    I warm it up until I have reasonable throttle response. couple minutes.
    Too sexy for this forum.

    Oil will have circulated through the engine in less than a minute, so unless the engine won't accept throttle smoothly enough to get underway within that time, you're good to go. Sitting for longer than necessary with the engine idling doesn't burn off condensation and doesn't warm up the motor nearly effectively as setting off and getting the engine active under normal riding conditions.

    I do the same as with my cars, fire it up and drive away, stay off the thRottle and low in the revs until about half the difference from ambient to normal operating is gone.
