The best thing to remember with a new engine is to keep it running rich.

Heat the engine up manually to about 200 degrees fahrenheit, then start it up and let it idle for a tank or so. After that, run for a few tanks at slow speeds, gradually going faster and tuning when necessary.

Here's a much more in-depth article: http://nitrohouse.com/tip_engine_break_in.htm
