    Break-in oil question.

    I know this can start a whole lot of discussion as far as this person said this and this article say's this.....
    I just want to keep it simple, what kind of oil did you use.
    Mineral oil ? (Mineral)
    Yamalube ? (Semi-synthetic)
    Amsoil intercepter or dominator. (Synthetic)
    Other.

    I did a search and didnt find much just bits here and there.

    I break in with Yamalube for two tanks then switch to synthetic. Thats my method. how you break in is even more important than what oil you use.

    Thanks guys. I am planning on going with the Yamasludge first due to it being only semi-synthetic and then going to the Intercepter.

    I want the rings to seat good this time.
    Break-in is this weekend, so I guess I will ask the all important question, what would you suggest for break-in. Heat cycle and vary RPM or balls out ???

    Once again this is how I do it, others have their method.

    Get it started check for leaks make sure everything feels and sounds right.
    start by warming up a bit, then from an idle jab it to half throttle so that it pulls hard. back off throttle repeat, continue this for twenty minutes. I know it sucks but it works let cool for twenty minutes use this time to give it another look over then repeat the process one more cycle. after the next cool down period start jabbing to 3/4 throttle and stay in it a second or two longer then some full throttle jabs. run the rest of the tank out varying the throttle like this with out staying at one setting for too long. the idea is to create as much pressure to seat the rings as you can.
    second tank you can stay in it longer and ride regular.
