Breaking in a new motor?

3 posts in this topic

I have a Suzuki 175 and I was reading the manual last night and noticed it talked about doing a lot of extra stuff during the breaking in period.

It talked about changing the oil and grease within the first 20 hours. Is that really necessary? Is that what a person should do or is that overkill?

also it talked about staying in the 3,000 rpm area during the first 2 hours -- I thought it was best to move the throttle around quite a bit and not stay in just one RPM zone?

Anyone have any advice on a new motor?

Thanks

Go by the book on that four stroke for breaking it in. My break in period was around seven hrs of use. Treat her right and she'll treat ya right. I just ended up getting my oil change at the end of the first season, and only had 18.5 hours on the motor. That Suzuki will record how many hours and at what rpms you are running it.

Also, I was very mellow with the motor last year, and it showed on the computer printout. I just had it out for the first time this year on Monday night and I think they did a little tweaking with the motor during the first oil change, seems like I'm getting a little more gusto and rpms now.

      You are paying for it one way or another it is worked in the rental fee or you pay at the road I guess its a matter of preference. Places I go at milacs always had the road pass "included" I think when I rented from up north rental on red I had to buy a pass going out of rogers.   Beacon Harbor it was included

      Fun day today fishing with Rick G and Jim Uran. Caught a lot of fish and we kept some nice ones for the tummy   Rick got biggest at 12 3/8.  And we got into some neat looking party crappies also. LOL  @Rick G  @Jim Uran   Hopped in the shower as soon as I got home to warm my wet arse up. Sleet and snowy day. Enjoying a glass of Pinot Noir right now and fish fry time Thursday night. THX for the maple syrup Jim ! !

      I went out of fish lake and with my leg,  found a hole just a bit smaller than a man hole, right in the middle of a well traveled and plowed road. I Informed the folks at the high banks about it so hope they marked it. I also found several other holes from old holes widened to around 12". Im done driving for the year. If I had a house out there I would be getting it off ASAP.
