That's what I said: follow the instructions that come with the engine.

Some good methods...

I also want to ad, that if you have a motor that keeps heavy (metal to metal) pinch for more than 1.5 gallons of fuel, you need to replace the connecting rod sooner. Novarossi's, RB's, Max Power Motors, and any Nova based engines should get a new connecting rod between 2-3 gallons of fuel. If your racing in upper level racing where you need a absolute power from your motor,.. change that rod! When you change the rod after 2 gallons, the performance gets even better, more efficient, and will run for 5+ perfect race tuned gallons in most cases.

....and when practicing, run one of those ebay dry layer filter covers, use zip ties on the filter housing, and KEEP THAT AIR CLEANER FRESH! The number one reason for losing a motor is DIRT intake.

You also have to remember there are two ways to look at it. Yes, it is their motor and they know it...but they are also in business to sell parts for the engines as well. The more stress you put on the motor breaking it in, the sooner they get to sell you a conrod, etc.

Not saying that is the scenario, but could be....
