Pit bike engine oil and break in tech TBolt USA Tech Database!
We recommend running conventional oil (non Synthetic) during break in
During the initial run of the engine you want the rings to "seat" and seal along the cylinder walls
These engines are steel sleeve or cast iron liners cylinders and can get
"glazed" buy the extremely slipper properties of synthetic lubricants
and cause the engine to smoke
We send every engine and bike customer an information email and post info in every sale stating so
here is an excerpt from that info:
These are procedures that are recommended for all
1)Change the oil right away before you start the engine
with 10w40 non
2)Engine Break in , Run at low speeds with very low loads
first 2-4 hrs.
its ok to rev it up , just don't put a large load on the
engine like big
hills ect.Change oil after engine break in.
Once the engine is broken in you may change over to your preferred oil if you insist or prefer
We like Maxima oil
