Re: Hello from Virginia beach va
Welcome, and nice build. Personally, I like to keep it on the oily side when breaking in these engines. I suggest 25:1 for the first couple of tanks. I get away happily with about a 35:1 thereafter (I use standard 2-stroke oil and castor (80/20)). There are many different schools of thought WRT breaking-in. I like to keep it at around 20MPH for break-in. You WILL experience some sputtering (4-stroking) until the engine gets up to operating temp.
