engine break-in?

Well fellas..... I finally finished rebuilding my 660 into a 686 and have rejetted the carb with a 170 main and a 55 pilot for a baseline. Now the question that I have is how long should I let the engine idle for the break in period? Or what is the recommended practice for breaking in a new rebuild? I do not want to do any harm to the engine. Any and all advice will be helpful, Thanx.

Start and run around 1800 Rpms till motor warms up. Let cool all the way cool then repeat 3 times. Then you can drive it. This will make sure the rings get set in good......

Just happy to be riding again

I like to give it a full throttle rev up (don't overrev or hold it long) just up n down up n down. gonna set the rings in real good. I do 3 full heat cycles this way, then ride it like you stole it. just did a CRF450R like this last week and the dam thing rips! same gearing and has an extra 3-4 mph top end guess I need to freshen mine up lol
