Breaking in an engine
What are the different ways of breaking in a rebuilt engine. Want to break it in for it to be more aggressive than normal. Please lend your expertise.

Let her warm up real good then run it like you stole it! Seriously though, don't baby it but no LONG WOT runs on the first tank. Just do short WOT bursts to get the rings seated in but you don't want it getting too hot or running lean with a long WOT run.

I'd say warm up usually takes approx 5-7 minutes. This is usually accomplished while idling away from the dock in the No Wake Zones. You need to let the ski warm up EVERY time you ride it, not just while breaking it in.
