Default Re: How to know when broken in? Fuel ratios?

Damn mike, that was a pretty harsh. Totally uncalled for. Every experienced builder I know has taken a spill, including me. And i can't think of one time it was due to engine failure.

I blew an engine at 62mph, and rode out of it unscathed, mostly because at that speed it blew apart instead of seizing up, 'cause the rest of the engine just disintegrated.

And I flipped over the bars at 45 because of a tiny little bolt failure on my front brake, landing me in the hospital and altering my life forever.

Yeah, these motors can suck, blow up unexpectedly, frustrate the **** outta you, but you don't have to be a jerk about it.
