Running in a new engine

Recommended Posts

Some people have asked what the best oil to use for breaking in a new engine and most people don't know what the best way is to break in a new engine.


To help with this one.

Our advice is:


The best oil to use is a mineral oil with lots of zinc or a 'break in' specific oil.*

The best way to break in a new motor is to run it hard!

The exact proceedure is outlined here on this site:



Once your motor has been run in, swap out the oil for your favourite Motul synthetic product and happy trails!


*Sorry, there is a Motul Break-In oil, but available in the US only at the moment.
