Thanks! I plan on checking up with the replating shop, the manual, a yamaha dealer, and of course the internet to see what the general consensus is for break-in, since I'm sure everyone has a different opinion on what is best (motoman, etc.). I will be sure to update this thread as well as my others (it's been a problem for a while) once I get it all figured out. Thanks again for your help. Also, the piston pin had some visible wear lines and it stuck a little when coming out, so I hope that didn't wear the end of the rod at all. I will check for piston "rock" when I get the new piston and pin installed.
