    Read the owner's manual.

    If there is nothing in the manual regarding a break in period, than I would say it's safe to assume there isn't one.

    Have fun with your new "toy".

    I could of swore the owners manual said somthing to the extent of "avoid reaching full throttle until after your first three tanks" I suggest you read your manual carefully- everything has a break-in period.

    The manual says to not use full throttle for 3 tankfulls. I totally ignored this and am on my 4th tank of gas. I really like this machine.
