    Break in SHO

    I know the dealer sayd 10 hours, but how soon can I go full throttle to see what she will do. Iam sure I have a while to go yet, she isnt reading a full hour yet

    See owners manual. It describes break in, in detail. Which I did. Most dealers don't have a clue on what they are talking about, especially where I bought mine.

    Do a search on break in, there's been a lot of discussion. Don't baby it!

    I feel like I know more than ANYONE that works at my dealership. I would go with the hard breakin with varying throttle positions. Don't hold one constant speed until 5 or 6 hours. Don't hold full throttle for more than a few seconds.

    Do a search you will find the proper method.

    I have gone pretty hard with my SHO Cruiser run-in. So far, done 2.5 hours really quick and hard (after a good 5-10 minute warmup). It's just too tempting to go hard, especially when you have that much power under you. I have had no problems. Will complete the rest of the '10 hour' run-in this weekend. Going the same way. Bring it on.

    1st 5min just trolling speed
    next 30min under 5000rev mixing up throttle position
    next hour under 6000rev mixing up throttle position
    then go for it
