I ordered my BME 50 yesterday. I was just wondering if anyone is running one? If so, any tips od breaking in/running this engine?
This is my first gas engine.

I have seen fist fights over this subject!
BME,s instructions for oil use at break in and normal running are very clear on their website,and happen to be exactly the same as I use for my gassers.
Modern synthetic oils are so slick,and our usage of two stroke engines so mild compared to more hostile environments that the break in procedure must allow some heat and friction so that the cylinder walls,piston ,and ring(S) mate together.
They reccomend synthetic at 50/1 for normal running after break in ,and thats what I use except I prefer Klotz.
The other main point they make is to use the synthetic at the mix rate reccomended by the mfg,which means dont use 100/1 at half the rate,or 25/1 oil doubled.
Im sure someone will input to this thread swearing by Amsoil 100/1.Lots use it but Im damned if I see the advantage in power or cleanliness,and to me its just taking a chance on over heating your engine.If this happens and you send the engine back to BME with a nice blue color on the cylinder walls they just might void your warranty.......Thats my opinion anyway.......
The Planet is doing what it has always done.......floods,volcanic eruptions storms,
earthquakes.........but today there are more people in the way.
