| | How long until a bad pattern is broken in
If I assemble my rear gear and find it makes noise, how long do I have until I have broken it in until I can never make it quiet. I did 2 break-in runs, very gentle ones (total 40 miles), and took it apart due to being unhappy with the noise at a certain RPM. I thinned the pinion shim down and put it back together and the noise is much better now but not perfect. Is my set up off, or is my gear set messed up from driving it?
