Default Re: Break-in Period

I've been around 2 cycles for a long time but never truely understood what a break-in period for 2 cycle motors really does? I have to admit I'm guilty for never breaking in any of my motors. Maybe its because I have a heavy throttle hand or foot. I do however know the importance of seating my piston ring. I usually just spray a little WD-40 in my new cylinder (an old racing trick) or use WD-40 when I'm building a new motor and don't punch it for the first couple of minutes of running it and "BAM" ring is seated.
Can someone please shed some light on my ignorance?
