I myself am running the older version of the STS RS3 engine. Had to change the conrod to a Nova one. More reliable. Overall bang for the buck I must say. But I hear the newer D3 and D5 ones still need their conrods to be checked once in a while.

I guess they are the same with Sirio engines. You need to check the conrod from time to time.
$229.99- Team edition "Race ready no break in needed"

$209.99- Zen modified D3/D5

$ 89.99- Zen modified 3/5 port piston/sleeve with conrod assembled.

Nope.
They're a couple of cities away, and I was thinking about adding them as one of my vendors.

I was looking high-and-low for this, but it looks like mine needs running in.
Dont forget to borrow a heat gun/hair dryer before 1st start up.
It makes a lot difference in rod life.

Watch the different "sound" it will produce.
Yesterday is my 1st day I crank my KHM 21 on the bench.
I shut it down on the second tanks, the engine is producing a scarry pitched sound in the mid to top rpm.
I thought that I had a bad batch of KHM but after talking w/ my partner who ride it already, he assure me that this engine is really having different "sound".
So i supposed it was came from the ceramic pitching.
I must wait till this sunday to install the ceramic to my RR to proove it and hopefully can answer bro D question.

I need the RING so that I can put the blame on it if anything should happen.

Then still keeping it rich, the next few tanks on the circuit until the piston hasn't so much resistance when the engine is hot.
Then over the next few tanks, slowly lean the motor out - keeping an eye on the temp.

Any final tips?

Cheers, Mark.

Yep Don't enjoy driving the 710 'cause you'll be driving it to fast like I did and fry the egine

Lets say keep it "slow&steady"
