break in k star

should one use a real rich mix during break in? what is a good ratio? 25:1 is what is in it now. also hows this setup? 16 intake sha carb, proma gp and kstar with 89 jet on puch maxi.

Re: break in k star

25:1 is already super super rich. It's like twice as rich as the (arguably) standard moped gas/oil mixture, of 50:1

Re: break in k star

Dont do 25:1. 40:1 would be very conservative and 50:1 would prolly be fine. Just make sure you are jetted slightly richer than perfecto/typical and ease it into blastie-type maneuvers (not seizing is a state of mind more than anything:)

Re: break in k star

why not 25:1? when ever i broke in my pocket bike this is the mix i used, also ive got a rd 400. its a two stroke and i had a new top end and filters and pipes put on it and I run it at 32:1

ever hear theory more oil more hp?

what jet if i switch to 40:1?

Re: break in k star

Re: break in k star

NEVER HEARD MORE OIL MORE HP. it is certainly not true.

Re: break in k star

I ran 25:1 breaking in my 70 airsal on puch . It was cheap , non sythetic, walmart brand type stuff though. At 350 miles now and it's still kickin.

Re: break in k star

nice flip flop wheelie

do what ever you think you should do.

i ran 25:1 on all my bikes. really i just dumped it in and hoped i just went over 32 1 a bit.

Re: break in k star

never ever do wheelies wearing flipflops ever again.

Re: break in k star

flip flop wheeiles are gangsta, jk i don't even ride the rd any more, still got it but for some reason i'm more drawn to the puch...

Re: break in k star

as for the the more oil more hp theory...it could be true because you can get better compression and i heard this from a derek king he is a local 250 gp racer/mechanic who does well and built the engine in the bike i'm doing flip flop wheelies on he also ownes his own bike shop....shade tree mechanix
