The Himalayan is a great all round motorcycle but perhaps it’s best at home on the green lanes and the country roads and not the Motorways!
In the 1940’s there was this automotive engineer by the name of Laurence Pomeroy.
He came up with a standard called the "Pomeroy Dictum". The Pomeroy Dictum states that for good longevity, the piston speeds in an internal combustion engine should remain under 2500 feet per minute.
It’s an old standard, but some say it is still relevant today !
Race engines generally run much higher piston speeds compared to normal road riders but then a race engine is rebuilt regularly, we want our engines to last so riding them conservatively not only save on fuel but decreases pollution and noise and gives our bikes a longer life.
Using the Pomeroy Dictum I show you how to apply a simple formula to work out the best RPM for your particular bike.
I don’t think it does too much harm to occasionally exceed these recommended RPM values as I have done it many times on my bikes with no negative effects so far but generally I do ride conservatively.
