New bike, should I break in before.......

Recommended Posts

This is my 2nd 450X. I modded the crap out of the 1st one. Question though...Should I break the engine in before modifications? All of my parts came in today.

Q4 with Powerbomb

JD with fuel screw

air box

Some other items I received dont matter (rad guards, skid plate, etc...)

Thanks

It doesn't matter.

The IMHO, key is proper break in. Commonly known as 'heat cycling with hard seating'.

Start with KNOWN good oil (both).

Three 15-20 minute rides:

- 2 minutes idle warm up each

- 5 minutes normal riding, 10 min hard accelerations using all the gears

- No hill climbing, No constant rpm riding

- Cool down till stone cold.

- Repeat two more times.

- Change both oils.

Note: No aggresive throttle, do it progressive!
