Default Re: Break-in oil

I'm a certified mechanic (not that it means anything) and I use the practice of break-in with mineral based oils for some amount of time, (cars, motorcycles and motorbikes), for ring and other metal seating. (Not that I know anything)
Some years ago we tried break in on a motorcycle with synthetic and never could get the rings to seat resulting in a lot of leak-down. Just my experience.
