we've been through this a million damn times....Dino juice never wins..

There are even instructions on Motul's site about how to break it in using synthetic.

Theory: synthetic is too slick, break-in doesn't happen. (source http://www.mototuneusa.com/break_in_secrets.htm)

applies to 4 cycle, the concepts apply to 2cycle, but there must be modifications...

Reality: our bikes have relatively shitty machine tolerances and there is ALOT of friction (and heat) going on during the breakin (which is pretty short), most likely, you will end up with some scratches if you aren't real easy on it with dino juice.

With synthetic just lock and load, and don't even worry about the breakin "period". Pretty much good up to 90% throttle (as indicated by motul) for the first couple miles, then it doesn't matter at all.

wisdom is advice thats ignored, so go ahead, prove me right :P
