Default Re: engine break in

you can run it all day. i mean, you should be able to run it all day.

my first bike, i ran it 24:1 for break in, and rode it till the tank was dry. stopped a few times for smokes and to relax, but there's no reason you should only ride it for 30 minutes a day till it breaks in.

my current bike, i ran it with 60:1 Opti-2 oil (DO NOT do this with regular oil) the first day, and rode it 50 miles or so. full throttle for miles at a time.
