Break in Question for Rebuilt Engine??????????
04 RXP with the following mods:
- Riva Front Air Intake
- Riva Valve Train Upgrade with '06 Inconnel Valves
- Greenwheel (Riva II) Wheel
- Riva Gen II External Intercooler
- 42# Injectors
- 15/20R Impeller
- Stock waterbox/RXPX Resonator
Complete rebuild with the following:
- New bearings all the way around (mains, rods, cam)
- New rings on all cylinders
I assume that I should follow the much previously discussed break in requirement listed here, correct???????? Basically every thing on this ski is new other than the cylinder liners and any internal wear.

I would take it pretty easy on it for about 2 hrs, then as they say "ride it like you stole it"

Let motor warm up good. Vary the throttle at different Rpms. Short runs to high rpm. After 2 hours change oil and run it like your going to ride it.

there are books and articles written that support both arguments. truth is nobody wants to take the time to do ten hours of slow driving. just as an example though my buddy had gotten his motor rebuilt and did a few hours (3-4) and then drove it like a madman, the motor blew again, figured it was a fluke and did the same thing with the second rebuild and the motor blew again. the third time he didnt take a chance and did the ten hours like the mechanic told him; and it's been fine since. after he told me that story i just did the time.
