We have done it this way for 30+ years. I grew up with a guy that for most of his professional career set up motorcycles for American Honda that the magazines would get for testing. He basically blue-printed the bike from axle to axle. His method for break in was warm it and hammer it. A slow break in meant a slow motor.

I've always liked that advice.

Though I admit partly because it aligns with my inability to do any kind of slow break-in. I have a new motor, it is for the race car, and I can't afford to do anything other than hammer it pretty much from the get-go. Run it enough to drive into the trailer, check for leaks, and out and over to the grid.

Wishful thinking can be dangerous, but so far this hasn't bitten me in the posterior. Leakdowns are uniformly good.

Hello Shane.

Thank you and all the others for sharing so much knowledge!

Two years on, could you share how the engine has "aged", specifically oil consumption, etc.
Also, in hindsight, would you have done anything differently?

Thanks in advance,
Ben.

I just changed the oil from Amsoil 10-40, to Amsoil 20-50 I have only added a quart. This engine simply does not burn oil.

I tinker with it frequently, but I do not think I would do anything differently, the cams are a bit lumpy at lower RPMs, and the dual out was a bit loud until I put baffles in the tips.

But, no I wouldn't have done anything different , I like the simplicity and longevity of lower compression, single plug, carbs and distributor.

Little things make a huge difference and when the exhaust, intake, engine is finely tuned you can really get a lot of satisfaction. The engine spins up to stock redline 7K and beyond without worry.

Hope this helps, did you see my video?

Thanks for the additional insight Shane.
Yes, I did see the video taken along some gorgeous road (in Hawaii I presume?).

Arrow The Video as requested

The only other thing I have done since posting this video is I locked out the vacuum plate on the distributor and I have added baffles to the tail pipe.
