Break-In

So I am interested to know how different people choose to "break-in" their machines.

My manual said 1/2 throttle for 20 hours, so I did full throttle for 10 hours. Should be about the same! LOL

Get the extended warranty and WFO. I broke my Brute and V-Forces that way and NEVER had any troubles with motor. Always seemed to have trouble with engine braking tho. After Service Mgr showed me how to reset it myself, piece of cake.
