Run it varying rpms for the first tank. Don't hold high rpm's for long periods of time.

Whenever, just don't hold it there for long periods of time until you run a tank of gas through it.

Agreed. its just as important to Braap er WOT for a couple secs every now and then as it is to run it easy. Dont forget to run extra oil. Just got done breakin in my new parts too.

running oil mixed in with teh gas is not good as t leans the fuel mixture for break in run it for a whiel varying speeds run some wot runs and check compression as soon as compression raises a lot from when your first put it together the rings are seated and your good to go

break in oil[ x-tra oil in the tank] is not for breaking in a motor, its so you know your pump is working by watching the oil level go down in the tank, if your sure your pump is ok,
get it to operating temp, loosing it up for a mile 1 or 2 , and wot throttle runs ,its the hard accelleration thats going to seat the rings faster,
and i agree extra oil, will make it leaner,
