How long for the break in? What oil/fuel ratio?

2 questions for every one. How long does every one break there quad in after top end? My mechanic and I are going to go out and run at least 2 tanks through it before I open it up and see what it really has. I was also wondering fuel oil mixture every one runs to break there quad in and then what mixture after it is all broke in? Thanks for the help.

I heard that it was 20/1 after a rebuild, start it up and let it run for a half hour, shut it off and let it cool for 20 minutes, then start it up and let it run for 10 minutes and go(got that from airborn).

I run 24:1 at break in, and 32:1 after.

For a comprehensive step by step break in procedure, go to www.ctracing.com

It is a little overkill, but more of a fail safe.

Re: How long for the break in? What oil/fuel ratio?

I run the same mix that i intend to use in the bike for the rest of the time i am going to ride it. I ust to use 20 to 1 but I've been told that it may get use to the richer mix and that it's better to do it this way.
I start the bike and let it run for an hour, then turn it off and let it cool down. I check over the bike to make sure everything is good during this, occasionally blipping the throttle to raise the revs and keep the idle a little higher.On the first few rides i try not to beat on it too bad, keeping the revs in their midrange.

Break it in hard and it will always drive strong.

Re: How long for the break in? What oil/fuel ratio?

Josh, You are close, but I run that 3 seperate rounds....start it up for 10 minutes....let it cool 10 minutes....start for 20...let cool for 10....start for 20 let it cool for 10....then keep it at mellow for the first hour or so then let er rip!!!!

I run same mix at break in as I do for regular run...

make sure at each cool down stage ya check for any damage or leaks....I also after the last cool down, I take out the plugs and check them carefully....
