Re: How long do I let my bike warm up?
This is for a carbureted bike -- FI systems might be different. I put the choke on about halfway (or fully if it's cold out, say in the 30s), start it, let it idle below 3,000 while I check to be sure the turn signals, brake lamps, horn and low/high beams are working. About then (20 seconds or so), the revs go up. I cut the choke and ride off, taking it easy on the bike for the first few miles.
