    Proper break in on rebuilt (mostly new) engine a must?

    2004 GTX SC

    The 2010 pistons and 2009 valves are obviously slightly used but it will have all new rings, bearings and bolts as well as timing chain, gaskets, etc. Should I observe the proper "break in" procedure for new engines to give love to the new parts, specifically the bearings and rings?

    In my 25 years of motorsports, it has always been a gray topic.

    seadoo rings are plasma moly hone with a fine grit stone and the rings will usaully seat in the first heat cycle. use some standard 10-40 for the first 5hrs.
