Default Re: Proper Break-in and Making your engine last.

One of the things you'll want to do to increase your engine's life is pull in the clutch when going down long hills.

If you have the clutch engaged and the engine is spinning fast, throttle closed, it's not getting much oil, and it's running in a lean condition to boot.

During prolonged idling (like going down a long hill with the clutch pulled in) be sure to blip the throttle once in awhile.
