What about the www.mototuneusa.com method that was mentioned earlier? I am getting a new 06 Warrior this month. I'd like some adivse on how to break it in. This other methods vs what is recommended by Yamaha. I am not sure about which way to go.
I like to give new bike engines a slow easy break in...say maybe 2 minutes of idle followed by about 100 yards at half throttle. From that point on I consider it broken in and ride it hard as ****![/emoticons/emotion-2.gif]
Try to not do any wheelies on it for the first ten miles, use the clutch when you are shifting between gears most of the time, stay below 130 mph, and keep the RPMs below 5500. Once you pass the ten mile mark, open it up and have fun.
Follow the mototune method and you'll be fine. You might see a puff of black smoke the first time you really get on it hard, but after that the rings will be nice and tight. Just remember to vary the throttle like others said and remember to use the decompression of the motor to slow you down. This will aid in the setting of the rings.
Just bought a 2006 Warrior as well, and could not access the www.mototuneusa.com site. Is the site down, or can you post the recommended break in method that everyone is referring to....just want to make sure I am not missing anything that could cost me in the long run... [8D]
