Default Re: How long (miles/gas) should breakin take

I think mine happened around the 350 mile mark - BUT...I'd venture to say you may find subtle difference between each engine, especially considering CCs and place of manufacture. To describe it: it's as though the engine reaches a point where it just starts running better and better over a few days. At that point, if you try going from a 20:1 or 32:1 fuel mix down to a 40:1 fuel mix, you'll start noticing a positive difference in performance.
