Break In Question While Doing Oil Pressure Testing
I know, I know - too many questions. So - I have to make sure my oil pressure regulator is working correctly tomorrow by running the ski on the trailer for 15 minutes or so in the water. I already have about 10 minutes on the clock on the trailer and one trip (that didn't go the way I wanted). Is it going to hurt my 2 hour breakin tomorrow to run it at idle for 15 more minutes without varying the RPMs?
What say you?

Well put it this way, If your Oil pressure is not correct you will end up with worse proplems. SO dont worry about a few 10 min. heat cycles to check oil pressure. MAKE sure oil pressure is correct first then do a run.

why not just ride it, checking the gauge while you go.
If you need to ride with the seat off (if your using a temporary oil gauge)

I have it rigged where the seat can stay on. I guess the only reason not to, is not to push it too hard until I know if the oil pressure is OK. I guess if high pressure isn't an issue, I could just watch the gauge and make sure I don't fall below 30 psig.
Is too much oil pressure an engine damage problem?

Do what I told you on the trailer first!! Its always best to vary rpm's but I rather see you establish safe oil pressure before riding it. Pm me I will give you contact info
