Follow Venice's advice. There's no need to baby these things. They'll break in just fine if you ride it like normal. Don't go crazy and hold wide open throttle, WOT, continously but don't treat it like its made of glass either. Disregard the recommended 16:1 oil mix, start at 24:1 and move down from there after a couple of gallons to 32:1. You'll be fine. Let us know how its doing.
