Following wisdom found here, I held the rear brake and ramped up the throttle in a process that took ~3 seconds.
The smell of high temperature adhesives and friction materials followed.
The bike during initial acceleration is much smoother now. No negative results, from what I can tell or smell. Maybe removed some time from the life of the clutch, but well worth it. Far less "dash/fender rattle" and more comfortable.
When the time/distance is reached, the bike will get new roller, etc., but until then this is a great little trick.
Thanks, forumsters! Another satisfied customer! band

SCTLVR,

I have been doing this for years and it is great when you need to do it. It seems to need it more if there is a lot of stop and go traffic. But in California we can split traffic, as you know, so I really don't need to do it much. Some though will not do this. They will take everything apart for some reason. It's good you posted this for the members who just recently joined.

I had squealing when I first got the bike and did the "brake while accellerating" to get rid of it. Since then I have developed a heavy hand and simply do wheelies every time the light turns green. Strange cure.

Oh, the new belt has not squealed yet. The old (now spare) looked pretty good and was only a couple mm narrower so the few times I did this did not seem to matter. I would not recommend doing it a lot. Just do wheelies. Rolling Eyes

It's very interesting on here today, there's one old boy riding his Silver Wing with no hands and flapping his arms pretending he's a bird, we call that 'Orville Syndrome' in the UK. Now you're doing wheelies on yours every time the lights turn green, I really do find that hard to believe. Neutral

Fantasy and perception have little relationship to reality. I think I do therefore I do... king

Or maybe I am a fisherman and the fish is THIS big.
