    Running 50cc in

    I never really open it up, too scared lol. How many k's till you guys really open the engine up? Wouldn't mind going for a long ride to run in some more, it's done a first service and had an oil change and it's got about 300 k's on it, thanks

    Its more about heat cycles than outright wear, that's done in the first few minutes. One long run won't help, that will just have you in top droning away which will do more harm. Use it normally, that's all just don't hang on the red line, brief visits at most.

    Me, when I run something in it gets 20 or so miles at most of ridden steady. Basically making sure nothing falls of or suffers an early failure due to some spannering/material failing.

    Then I ride normally avoiding balls to the wall flat out for a few days.

    The last engine I did was my TDR250, full top end rebuild. Rebuilt the weekend before a 600 mile weekend tour. All that got was a 10mile trip to my mums, done steady then normal service.

    At 300k for me? that's long done.

    Nice!! Most I have topped it out is 70kmh I think that's 40 mh. I rode slow n low opening up for first 100. Wasn't sure really giving it now would wreak it.
