After lurking on others 1250 conversion threads, I would like to get everyone's tips for the intial start-up and break-in of my soon to be finished 1250. I did a short search here & the NRHS site, but I'd love to hear anyones thoughts.

Simple........follow what is suggested on the NRHS site. It's a proven formula and everyone that has followed their instructions have had success in their builds.

I did 1,2,3, and 4 minute heat cycles. Set rev limiter at 3k and did a 20 mile run and then changed the oil(not filter). Did short 30-50 mile runs for 250 miles, set rev limiter at 3.2k for the last 250 miles. Never idled or kept a constant speed. Changed oil and filter set rev limiter to 6.8k:tour .
