Default Re: X80-BK on a Murray Beach Cruiser - Starting issues and fuel problems. PLEASE HELP

Break in procedures are as varied as the personalities of the members here. You'll get lots of opinions on this. My advice is to read and research and do what you feel comfortable with. The suggestions will run from one end of the scale to the other.

In short, use a good quality oil formulated for 2 stroke air cooled engines and no more than a 24:1 fuel to oil ratio. Disregard the instruction manual that might have come with your kit and do not run 16:1 which is too much oil.

Good luck and get ready for some reading. The opinions will roll in here quickly.
