2020 TX 300 I break in

Recommended Posts

I've rode my tx 300 about 2.5 hours so far for "break-in." Did not ride hard at all just cruised around did a few hill limbs ran through gears. I am going to change engine oil. My question is I plan on racing Sunday and feel that is a sufficient amount of time on motor before a race. I watched slavens break in video and I agree with Jeff. The race is a haresceamble, typically it is tight single track.  Weather may b a bitmuddy. I did put a trail tech fan on it plus running Evan's coolant. Any opinions on this?

They are ran hard on a Dyno in the factory , all you are doing is wasting ring life riding gentle

I buy 10k dollar bikes and break them in on the starting line. You get about 15 minutes to seat those rings, seat them. If you baby it you will get blow by and a rich feeling engine

Honestly, I don’t break bikes in. I take them on shake out ride and then change the oil. That’s it. Pretty much what you did. Have fun racing that dirtbike!

2.5 hours is more than enough, ride it on . I've know plenty of people who showed up on race day straight out of the box with no problems or lasting faults

Why isn’t a more aggressive break-in, as you infer, supported by Husqvarna in the manual for how to appropriately break-in the engine?

This is interesting.  What specifically are they doing when they run them on the dyno?  I would guess making sure the power curve falls between control limits.  Do they adjust power valve dolly at this point?  Do they run it hard to seat the rings?
