Did it come with oil in it? just dont put Synthetic oil in it first-off you want them rings to seat good…thats my outlook on breakin in a motor...floor it and run with it.

When I rebuild a small engine, I will let it idle for a few min to warm up. Then just bump the speed up to about half thottle for a few min. Then just run it normal without reaching full RPM's for about an hour or so. Then I would drain the oil. Then run it normal for 15-20 hours or so. Then drain it and fill it with some good Amsoil Synthetic or a good equivalent. That has worked well for me on many Kohler and Briggs rebuilds! But you should see if your owners manual has any info.

Yep. Buy 2 cans of ether, start the motor, give it full throttle and spray both cans into the air cleaner. If that don't break it in nothing will. lol

Pretty tough to destroy a honda engine. I dont remember breakin on my old one...change the oil after 5 hrs or so and go.

Just do a few heat cycles, warm it up(usually only anminute or two) then blow it out for a sec, let it idle down and then kill it. Wait for it to completely cool and repeat twice. Change the oil and you should be good!
