Default Re: Break-in oil

Wives tale? My wife doesn't tell stories about oil (sigh, Imagine a world), but engineers do and some manufacturers say not to use synthetic until after break-in. 10 minutes? Possibly 100 mi on this little motor, but when I bought a cylinder/piston kit for my Guzzi I was advised to vary my driving for 500 mi and a 1000 mi on my new car. Both of these motors have a lot more longevity but I have a hard time believing 10 minutes is enough.
