i usually go a couple tanks of fuel with a little extra oil added to the fuel. your supposed to keep changing the throttle but dont let the rmps get too high try to keep it under 3/4 throttle. but in the end, if the top end was done right you shouldnt have any problems. my .02

Ok, great, Thanks. I got one tank threw it tonight and it run great. It sure is hard not to gun it. After the first hour I took it up to 100mph real quik and than let off. I dont think it hurt anything but you cant be to carefull.

One take is all it takes. You can get into'er good just dont hold it at any throtle position very long. Just recently there was another person that brought this topic up and some good advice was given in it. You could probably find it in a wuick search. Check 'engine breakin'...

Broke mine in with one tank mixed with oil, varied the throttle, didn't give it too much throttle, and nearly 1500 miles later, she still runs like a champ.

One quart of oil in the first tank, varied throttle, no wide open throttle.
Ok, Thanks again for the tips.
Make sure it's mixed very well.
If not mixed well during your ride, you ride like a grandpa. LOL [053]

I just followed what it says in the manual: one tank pre-mixed with oil (IIRC, it's mixed in the tank 100:1) and varied the throttle with brief periods of wide open throttle.
