wendy Posted April 6, 2022 Share Posted April 6, 2022 My primary use of my Defender Ltd HD10 is driving down the vast network of dirt/gravel roads that I live on, with occasional stretches of rural paved roads. I'm wondering what cruising speeds are considered non-damaging for these engines and also how long it's okay to hold at say, 30-45mph. The owner's manual only warns against running at full throttle for more than 5 minutes in hot weather. Since the digital speedometers on these things only tell us current speed, and not potential speed, I don't even know what rpm would constitute full throttle. In fact, everyone who admires my machine asks me how fast it can go, but I have no way of knowing. Anyway, bottom line, can I cruise around at 30-45 miles an hour for several miles without hurting anything? Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
