Re: Check this out !! A video of the Poland Factory

interesting video,don't like the way they rev the bo***x off of them though.
We run them in after they've been pushed right up the rev limit by them.
Kinda wished i hadn't of watched it now.

That shows you there is absolutely no point in being gentle with a new 5OO for the first X amount of miles!

I thought that one of them had a "flashing mileage" fault already but on closer look it was the clock.

So half the mileage on your 500 when it arrives has been done on the rev limiter

Don't worry they were all left hookers, I'm sure they are more careful with RHD versions

That did spring to mind here, or they could rag them even more as they're going to another country

That would make sense as it is more likely the Poles will be driving them in this country as they are all over here earning good enough money to buy a 500.

Do you not think that one was a playing-for-the-camera moment?

Re: Check this out !! A video of the Poland Factory

gotta test the rev limiter otherwise how you know it works

anyway it's vital to rev them first time they are run

it seats the valves

valves are so accurately cut they don't need to be ground into place and simply rely on hammer action to seat them fully
