Typical motor breakin takes 10 hours. The best bet is to read and follow the recommendations in the manual.

Congrats on your purchase! I just bought a new 1890 BT Warrior this spring as well and am extremely excited to get it. I went with a 140 Suzuki on mine however. I would recommend reading the owners manual for your motor as it should tell you exactly how to run your motor during the break-in period. Have fun with your boat and I hope you have a great season on the water!!

Break it in according to the manual. When you bring it in for service the computer will tell the techs what RPMs it was run at, and when,

      What about Super America at Pike Lake? I think they do the same, with better hours. they refill out of big tank.

      Nice thats what I like to hear, was doing an annual trip to LOW with my buddies, but to be quite honest biggest fish I ever saw in 10 plus trips was 27 inches, I caught 3 bigger than that on the pond last year, and hey I can stay in Wright county where I live and catch 10 inch walleyes.. I don't make it up to that end of the lake ever, usually fish the south end..Bought a wheel house this year, would loke to set it up as base camp and hopefully be able to head up toward that end and do some exploring..And thanks for the input, thinking there is a lot of readers and not many writers on this site nowadays...

      Lake Marion is completely iced over. Hopefully we won't get much snow and be fishing soon.

      Silver lake in New Brighton is iced over. I'm going to count one week before checking thickness on my early ice spots. Could be fishing next Friday if all goes well.
