Sorry this went a bit off topic, from warming an engine to Ducati head bolts on an XT forum?
The problem in the older bikes (with spagetti like bolts) is the front cylinder hangs out there in the cool air & its normally the one that snaps first, i knew you was supposed to let them warm up good & proper & had already covered three miles before i gave it a handful & snap.
Ive seized motocross bikes up as well through not warming them up enough.
Thread hijack over.
