ENGINE OIL AND BREAK IN

ENGINE MANUFACTURERS RECCOMEND CHANGING OIL THE FIRST TIME AFTER 6 TO 10 HOURS. THIS IS TO GET RID OF PARTICLES OF METAL THAT BREAK OFF FROM THE MACHINED SURFACES INSIDE THE ENGINE THE TECHNICAL TERM FOR THESE PARTICLES IS ASPERITIES. THERE IS NO SENCE IN USING EXPENSIVE SYNTHETIC OIL TO ACCOMPLISH THIS. SYNTHETIC OIL IS FINE BUT THE ENGINE MANUFACTURERS ALSO OFFER PREMIUM OIL DESIGNED FOR AIR COOLED ENGINES AT A MUCH MORE AFFORDABLE PRICE CHANGE YOUR OIL OFTEN AND KEEP A GOOD AIR FILTER ON THE ENGINE MAKE SURE THE AIR FILTER IS DOING ITS JOB BY INSPECTING THE CARB THROAT FOR SIGNS OF DIRT INGESTION.
