I'll be running a B3 in a couple of weeks until the Pro arrives, will be cool to compare them back to back.

good idea! im not to happy with my Novarossi at the moment don't get me wrong their onroad engines are flawless (never had an issue with them) but since the troubles ive had with me 21+7BT im not to fond of there offroad engines and im not the only one at my track either so ive got a Ninja BO1A in the mail now but im keen as mustard to try out the new Werk's engines. Their B7 Pro has all the goodies Hard Black coated Block, balanced crank with a tungsten insert& lightened and ramped with an epoxy filler, Turbo glow plug, lightened, low CG head design

That will be the new "bang for the buck" champion. I am still running the original gold head B7 and love it.

I finally got a B7 Pro for myself! But I can't find any break-in instructions. Should I just heat cycle it? Cyrul Method? Same method as the previous B7?

This thread is coming along nicely! I'll let ya know how I like the engine.

regards

I have had great luck with a variation of the heat cycle method. I do it for 4-6 minutes at a time. I pre-heat the engine with a heat gun (very important) and I wrap the head in foil. This way I can hold 200-220f at idle and a slightly rich setting to make sure lots of oil is passing through the engine. After 4 cycles like this I start running it very lightly on pavement for a couple more cycles. It is very easy on the engine and makes for a good, tight piston/sleeve fit. The heat gun and the foil are what makes the difference.

Yep, they are a beast alright.
A couple of my team-mates have them. Every time I drive them I come in after a couple of laps to check the temp 'cause they feel like they are running very lean, the temp is about 85-90*, not even warmed up
They are just brutally fast in the top end, but liquid smooth in the lower ranges too.

Another time the same BS? Is a troll lie that Star Motor company is closing their doors (and still repeats, repeats, repeats, repeats...). On this forum there is very knowledgeable people who know about the Andrea Rossi factory and none gave a word about that.

In fact, they're launching new engines and for the looks and the performance showed some pre-production units, should be killer. Simply close your ears to those comments. If anyone tells you that, simply discard what he told.
