Re: Better with age ? (duc998cs)

Testastrettas are set up pretty tight. It takes 3000-4000 miles to loosen them up. Enjoy the ride!

Now stick a 41 tooth on the rear and enjoy the 3rd gear wheelies.

I have noticed the same thing with my 998 and even more so with my 996. I had 14700 miles on my 996 and got tossed off it one night riding wheelie's. It was kicking ass that night and I was enjoying her when all the sudden she bit. I know this now and I watch out for that power gain with age. I could be all just in my head but I don't think it was an illusion.....

Re: Better with age ? (road rash 2)

All engines gain power once they're broken in ... the key here to yield the most gain is braking them in properly.
