Which way is right? Which way is wrong? How have YOU broke in YOUR engine? Do you reccomend your style? Do you regret anything? Please feel free to leave tips. I still need to finish my bike and I want to know how to break it in. Thanks!
I break in with 50:1 marine oil and do not baby it. I did this with 7 of my own engines and dozen or so I broke in for others. Some of these have many thousands of miles now and none ever seized or wore prematurely.
Once I accidently idled a HT for 48 hours straight til gas run out, didn't seem to have any effect.
