When should I start using syn. oil.

Recommended Posts

I broke mine in also taking in his advice. I figured the best place to break it in was at the track because your on and off it hard and then a break for cool down.

1 hour. You could use it from the start if you want. I changed mine after a hour. Runs great and does not use oil. I broke mine in this way http://www.mototuneusa.com/break_in_secrets.htm

I agree, you can indeed use synthetic oil, NON-energy conserving, for break in, especially if you break it in the "hard" way as described in the link. I have broken new pistons/rings in twice using this method, with synthetic oil, and I have great ring seal, no puffing smoke, and no oil usage. :cry:

I went synthetic at the first oil change as well. No problems, other than the bike is too much fun to ride.
