I was wondering what thoughts are on breaking in on alky or race gas? I was concerned w/ heat cycles.

I also have a lectron and was wondering how to set up needle or how to tell if needle is set at right height...or where to start out at?

I did read above post on alky tuning but theres nothing on the needle.

Thanks,JP

When starting for the first time on a new piston, i usually let it warm up real good keeping on the throttle as slow low revs just to keep from washing the cylinder and enoughf to burn at a clean rate. cool all the way down repeat again with midrange revs then change my oil and start putting some strain on the motor.... Whether its the right way hell i dont kno but it works good for me.

How many times do i need to do repeat these hot starts? On the needle if you call packard he will tell you the measurement really quick as to where the needle should be adjusted for your setup

I let mine warm up twice then completely let it cool down then the 3rd time I warm it up and take it for a nice and easy ride then the 4th time your ready to go once you warm it up

I'm leaving my Lectrons alone, as is...gonna heat cycle it a few times on gas to build up some heat.

I'm sure I'm gonna foul a plug or 2...

Ok thanks Dave! I talked to Tim at Titan he told me to turn P/J's off and break in on purge gas......Sooooo prob what im gnna do. I will adjust needle to 46mm and go from there.

Thanks Jp
