Engine Break In/first Start Up?????
ok fellas i did a search a while back and found a really good article and for some reason i cant find it now.. so please enlighten me with what i need to know:
what (oil/gas) ratio do i run for break in? and what after break in?
the very first touch of the starter should i throw it in the water on the hose or try it in the garage??
what about the procedure.. 25% gas for 10 mins, then 50% for another 10 mins after cool down???

Remy, this is what I was told to do on my project ski and all is well.
Mix gas at 28:1
Do not ride over 5000 rpm for the first tank for break in
Inspect plugs and water flow and temp every so often so you can catch any problems before they become a headache.

32:1 mineral oil on break in, 40:1 after
run on hose for 10 minutes with 2000 rpm idle
First runs vary throttle, don't hold any one throttle setting, no wide open till one tank thru it
1/2 way thru second tank let er rip

ok, don't let it run for 10 minutes on hose, what is important is that you get heat into the head to allow bolts etc to set, then retorque head if you have not used loctite. If you used loctite don't touch the bolts

ok ill start it in the garage to see if it fires then take it to the water. putts around varying my throttle, not exceeding 5000 rpm.
should i do this continuisly for the whole tank or go for 10 mins and let it cool then repeat until the tank is gone???
i will retorque the head bolts as i didnt use loctite on them...
i always thought 32/1 was normal (for dirtbikes atleast) and break in was more.what do i know...
i did do a whole motor rebuild not just top end if that makes a difference..

Try 15 min 1/4 throtle varying rpm
15 min 1/2 throtle varying rpm
Then run out the tank no more than 1/2 throtle varying rpm.
next tank 3/4 throtle varying rpm some short full throtle pulls if everything is good.
This is not by the book but should be safe I think.
What octane are you running.
You can start it on the hose dont let it idle snap the throtle and dont run for long.

I always run 28:1 for the first tank, then use your 32:1 after that.

alright so i dropped 4 gallons of 28/1 in last night... it was turning over smooth but not starting, i think because i was using the same battery i had in there last year.. it was fully charged but doesnt have any juice....so good enough i ordered a new batt and ill get it tomorrow at 9 am sharp.......
another thing i was wondering about is the primer kit?? i have the tube that sucks the fuel into the plunger hooked up to my return line just a couple inches off the tank.... should i move the t-fitting down closer to the carbs??? it wasnt squirting any fuel on my finger when i reached in where the flame arestors are... please help
