This area is for discussion/information on the "modern" AJS motorcycles manufactured in China from 2006 onwards.
Can I assume you are Polish. Our club has a very active Rep. in Poland for Polish members. We have also held a couple of International rallies nr. Hell. If you have friends in Poland with AJS or Matchless, tell them about our club. They may like to join.

The best way to warm up an engine is to work it. 'Warming up' an engine by leaving it ticking over harks back to basic water cooled car engines and the days before multigrade oils were available which do not need warming up to thin them and get them flowing. You see race bikes warming up stationary because they can't go for a blast around the paddock or on the track to do it.
My modern bike has a side stand cut-out but it also has a manual choke. I start it, ride off and turn the choke off after a mile or so.
The consequence of riding off with the stand down is most unpleasant, if not dangerous.
PLus of course Neville 2 stroke race bikes have to be warmed up properly before being ridden or you risk a cold seize - ask me how I know
never ride faster than your guardian angel can fly
