Default changing p/s after break-in

some racers say that you need to change the piston and sleeve after break-in since these parts were pressured during break-in process and performance will not be the same anymore. others say that no need to replace them,just a waste of money and just wait until the engine loose its compression.

I would agree that changing the conrod is more appropriate after break-in.

But change the P&S after break-in. Must be joking. Then the break-in process will never end.

Manticore,
Yes, its the conrod that they say. Apologize for my ignorance i'm not that familiar. So, this should be changed as the other mentioned in this thread. Thanks.

Don't waste your money. Slow guys like us don't need to change anything.

Plugs cost me about $4 aussie !

Maybe they pick up some metal during breakin even though I couldn't find any under my microscope so far.
