    2004 GP1300R top end break in period and tips????

    Need some advise on breaking in my ski with brand new top end kit from sbt ($700 one) ski has 160 hours on it and the wear looked great. How long and advise on how to do. And on a side note any tips on installing new blacktip traction pads.

    agreed.

    as for the the pads i took the pads off my ski and installed new factory ones. I used a heat gun to soften the glue holding them down. On my gp1300r there seemed to be a rubber cememt type of glue holding them on so a little head from the heat gun helped loosen then and they came off easy. Installing the new ones means just cleaning the surface well so the new ones will stick.

    When a friend bought a jug and piston from SBT they had a recommended break-in procedure, you could probably find that. Something like 5 minutes idling on the hose, turn off and let cool. Then 20 min of playing the throttle up and down below 3000RPM in water, let it cool. Then a half hour driving around, no constant throttle and nothing over 50%, let it cool. Then rest of tank no full throttle.

    I do use SBT parts and have broken in several top end rebuilds and usually don't get over half throttle for the first tank of fuel. as stated above the ideal break in is to let the motor heat up slowly and cool down this is critical with forged pistons like Wisco. but not as critical with the cast pistons that SBT uses but i still like breaking them in like stated to properly seat the rings.
    As far as the traction mats i use Goof off to remove the glue and a scraper or a plastic sponge. if you have a 6'' drywall knife it works great on the back. i usually let the Goof off soak into the glue for about 30 min. Hope this helps.

    Mike there is no problem people just don't want to hear that when that's not what they asked. Don't say you don't like those parts "ill start praying" come on with that Shit. I just want helpful feed back like the others gave so I don't do anything to hurt my engine. Great feed back guys I will contact sbt tomorrow and ask for there breakin plan. I am on the same page with yall about the trac pads and got them off and just need to clean before I put new ones on and I will go get some goof off. as well. More tips are welcome since I wont start till Friday or Saturday.

    Although asking the break in info from the people you bought the parts from should be a given.
