    How many miles or tanks of fuel does it take to break in a motor well (2 stroke)
    and how much power difference is there when it has been accomplished?
    I guess it might be necessary to speak in terms of 70, 65, and 48 CC (thereabouts) models individually.

    Is best way to get what you need.

    Lots of stuff on break-in.

    A Tanaka 2-cycle and similar engines, and 4-cycle Robin, Honda might take 1200 plus miles.

    Tanakas, for example, are hard chromed and tough as are the others mentioned, so break-in takes a while, according to GEBE and other sources.

    Do not have a clue about other makes, but if not hard-chromed,will take less time.

    Best to do a search and weave through threads.

    i'm assuming a happy-time. "frame-mount" is full of break-in info & opinions...hive is correct, search it out then ask your questions in an existing thread...scroll down to see "similar threads" for a start.

    it's easier than trying to gather it all together yet again, and it's good forum-maintenance :)
