How long to warm up the engine before starting out.
The manual says to warm up the engine for 2-3 minutes before moving,
and also to warm up for 2-3 minutes again when the engine has
been stopped, no matter for how long.
Are these procedures, especially the one that wants a warm engine
to be warmed up again when after being shut off...no matter for how
long to be followed after the engine has several thousand miles on it?
BTW, When I changed the oil for the first time in my VN750 at 230 miles
it didn't look dirty at all, but I just did my first oil change on my KLR650
and the oil had many, many very small minute particles that made the oil
look somewhat like dirty dishwater. I broke both engines in the same way
and can't figure out what caused the difference unless the KLR650 had
