Proper care of a Direct Fuel Injection engine starts at the beginning. While proper maintenance is essential during the entire lifespan of the engine, what you do during the first two hours of use will dictate how high of a performance value you get out of the investment. This can also help keep your engine alive longer, with the right few steps.
In general, the first two hours are critical. During this time, it’s recommended that owners avoid extended periods of time spend idling and wide-open throttle. It’s also a good rule of thumb to vary your speeds. New two-stroke engines will require more oil during this break-in period so it’s important to have enough OptiMax oil to get a jumpstart to a great engine experience.
