Default Re: How do You break in your ht motor?

The engine needs to see a load. No load means that the rings just simply chatter around in the cylinder bore too much . Making a sloppy break in from every artical I have read on the subject that made sense to me. The cyclinder seals better when rings have been seated the best.

On a new motor when I know the carb is tuned right. I then simply get on the machine and ride it. Out side my house is a good 5 mile run ''up hill'' That is where I go every time. Nice and steady. I do mix the trhottle up a little bit. Yet I am after sealing the rings at this point.

This in turn trains the rings on to there proper even running, well sealing path.
Still gotta have a since of humor.
