    Break in question.

    Sorry if this has been covered before. My 19 gp 1800r. Already put tial 50mm BOV. Ribbon delete cold air and thru hull exhaust along with a 13/20 prop. It hasnít seen water yet. Can you break the engine in with a tune or break it on stock tune then flash it. Thanks

    Some people follow the book and some people break them in hard.
    I would do it stock tune break in. Unless you do by the book and keep her under 5k.

    I broke in my 17 gp1800 in with a Dean 8650 tune. Installed with zero hours in it. I feel different about breaking motors in. Warm up checking for leaks and Break hard in like your gonna ride it varying rpms. You want the rings to seat but that's just me.

    guys, do not do an easy break in. Do not keep RPM's below 5000, etc. To properly break in an engine it must be run through all of the RPM ranges, including WOT. Do not be afraid to go full throttle right away, once the engine is warmed up. In fact, this is necessary to properly seat the rings.

    New to this site bought my 1st. Yamaha EX Deluxe. Well break I. Harder but will let it idle for a while then keep it slow for about 30 mins. Then hard and very speed. 2 questions how do you start a new thread and my storage under the front is very small. Is there an after market basket that will make more room under the front space looks like there is room

    Exactly what I’ve done with all my skis. Let it warm up a few minutes to get it up to temp/ make sure there aren’t any obvious issues and then let it rip!
