i got a new 15hp kawi .. im running dino for the break in.. when do you guys switch to synthetic? (those that do)

it says change oil after initial 8 hours.. im imagining most of the break in is done by then.

those of you that use synthetic oil, how many hours u let it break in on dino first?

50 hours is the normal hours for an oil change. But I sometimes wonder why Mercedes,Lexus and other high end cars come with synthetic oil from the factory?

ya but i wouldnt doubt those engines are broken in in the factory,, at least like for a good hour.. i could see them doing this with a vette or something.
