    break in motor.advance timing B4 or after?

    Getting a new top end (pistons, rings, gaskets ect.) and i want to do the timing mod. Im going to break it in like i stole this time. My question is should i break it in before i advance the timing or should i throw hte timing wheel in and break it in w/ a 6 degree advance.

    ski was running great at 350 hours. So i says, "thats gettin up there already, lets see if i can get a rebuild due to GIO. so i tell my dealer about the problem and contact kawi.... a couple months later kawi gives the OK to rebuild it. So im just doing it for a fresh top end. why not, its free

    went ahead and installed new shaft bearings too. thanks English Bob
