What break-in procedures do you like to follow with a newly built engine? How long to take it easy for in order to allow the new parts and old gears and cases, etc etc to meld together nicely?
Just for reference, I installed all new bearings, oil seals, gaskets, o-rings, and I rebuilt the clutch, replaced the shifting cross, kickstart gear, and replaced the gear shift cables. Wonder if I forgot anything...
Speedo/odo works fine ó it has over 12k miles ( the frame is actually newer... a 1964). I believe itís a former Shriners bike.
I put in a spiffed up old dellíorto 20/17 carburetor, and slapped on a new ďstockĒ Sito exhaust. It all feels about right. Some day Iíll restore the rest of it, and replace the wiring.
Thanks for your input. Cheers
