The second method of breaking in the pocket bike is
considered to be more fun because it involves some riding
action. First thing is letting the engine idle for about
five minutes to warm up a little. Then, slowly bring up the
throttle very gently. Bring it up to where the clutch would
engage to keep the bike from lurching if there was too much
throttle applied during riding.

When taking the bike for the ride, do one lap around the
tracks at a very slow speed. This helps to break in the
tires first. Then on the following lap the focus is on
trying to hit as wide a range of RPMs as possible by
accelerating and decelerating.

It is important that after the first lap you check that the
engine is warmed up enough before beginning. During the
fifteen minutes of riding remember not to push the engine
too hard or too slow. To keep the clutch from burning you
have to keep it from engaging completely. You will know if
the clutch is fully engaged by the bucking feel or the noise
of the engine.

There are other methods of breaking in the pocket bikes but
these two are the most common and standard. Once the bike is
properly warmed up you are ready to hit the tracks, just
remember to follow safety rules and wear proper safety gear
when riding. - 920

How to Break In a New Pocket Bike

by John Wall

The most important maintenance procedure you could do to is
breaking in your pocket bike before taking it out for the
first run. Try your best to refrain from riding the bike
immediately from the box. Without proper breaking in, you
risk cutting the bike engine's life by almost half and that
means you could be spending money maintaining your engine
much earlier than you should have to. When it comes to
properly breaking in a pocket bike, there are two most
popular strategies.















To break in your pocket bike with the heat cycling method
you first start by idling the bike or just above idle for
five to ten minutes. After the five to ten minutes are up
the engine will be a little warmed up but still below normal
operating temperature. At this point you want to cool the
engine to cool down, turn it off and let it cool off. Then
warm up the engine again by turning it on to just above idle
for ten minutes, and then turn it off to cool back down.
Turn the engine on then off to cool down for a total of four
cycles.

After the bike has cooled down for the last of the heat
cycling, it is time to take it out for a ride. Start off at
a slow and easy pace and ride it for the entire tank of gas.
Do not ride too hard or rev the engine too much to keep the
engine from stressing. After the tank has emptied then it is
ok to refuel and take the bike for normal riding.
