Default Re: heres how to break in your engine faster

16:1 is just too much oil and affects the overall fuel to air ratio as well.

Start out at 24:1 (which is still a lot of oil) and go to 24:1 or 32:1 after a gallon of gas.

Always let the engine warm for at least a long minute before you get on the throttle much. Two strokes are subject to "cold seizure" if run hard before they are warmed up.
