How to break in new piston ad rings?

Im going to be rebuilding my 1982 Honda Urban express next weekend and I was wondering how to break in the new piston and rings.

All i've ever done is run the engine then ride it at lower RPMs. DONT over heat it.

heat cycle the motor a few times then fast and hard.

Break-in is myth. They’ll “wear-in” on their own.

Don't use synthetic oil during break in. Use good ol Dino oil for the first few tanks. Keep it rich running.
