A question on Break-In

2 posts in this topic

Howdy, all.

Okay, after four years in the shed, my bike is finally running again. (Yup, you read that right.) I've totally rebuilt it basically from the ground up. Since it's been a long, long time from the last time I've had to break in a bike, I've totally forgotten the basics, other than take it easy on it and change the oil right afterwards. I seem to remember something about 500 miles being the break in period, but, I'm not sure. Here's some data to help you help me: '93 XR650L with Weisco (sp?) Piston (1 over, 101mm), Barnumspro Cam, R&D Valve springs, Edelbrock Pumper carb, K&N filter, with the airbox snorkel removed and holes cut in the side, stock header with a supertrapp EAR muffler. That's all the engine mods to a nutshell. It now has absolutely no time on it, other than getting it started and revving the throttle a few times to get the idle set.

Thanks for ya'll's time. :)
