    So as long as the weather cooperates and the stars align this weekend, I’m planning on breaking in my brand new LO206. However, the internet appears to be sparse on any particular procedure.

     

    Anyone have a tried -and-true method for breaking in one of these things?  I’ve broken in many a 2-stroke, but never a 4-stroke. Should I just use the same  method of; varying the RPM from low to med for a few laps, cool to ambient, one high RPM run and drain the oil?

    Run it on the stand for about 10 minutes. Make a couple slow warm-up laps, and then hammer down.

    That’s it. After one or two sessions, I would drain the oil and put in new.

    Thanks guys. Not too far off what I was thinking. My understanding is that the bottom end of the WF is essentially the same as the animal/206, so that procedure should work nicely.
