Engine Break-in Procedures

  1. On initial engine startup, don't just sit and idle the engine while you admire it or tinker with minor adjustments. Heat buildup can be excessive.
  2. The first 50 miles should be on the highway. They are the most critical for new rings piston break-in. Most engine damage will initially occur during this period. Do not lug the engine.
  3. Keep heat down by not exceeding 3000 RPM or 60 MPH for the first 500 miles. Speeds must be varied.
  4. For balance of first 1,000 miles, speeds can run up to 75 MPH. Continue to run engine at all different speeds, including lower 40-45 MPH ranges. Avoid overheating engine and any hard strain on it (drag racing, trailer towing, sidecar operation).
