    Question Heat Cycle 300x

    So I've seen a couple theads talking about heat cycling the engine?

    I think I already do this (or what I would interpret) when I run hard or WOT I don't ever just shut the ski down, run it at 3k rpm to cycle coolant.

    Is this what this is refering to? Am I missing something

    thanks!

    Think there referring to break in but it's Also a great idea to always idle down for a few mins before shutting the ski off after long WOT or riding. I just idle vs high rpm like 3k but that's me.

    Heat cycles are the "cycle" of the engine going from stone-cold to operating temp and back to stone cold. It allows gaskets to "bed in" properly. BTW, It is a common practice for high-end race mechanics to re-torque things like cylinder heads and exhaust manifolds after a few heat cycles for durability.
