Default Use of Tach for Break-in on Saito 125a

I am breaking in a new Saito 125a and have never used a tach before to breakin. Can anyone shed any light on that procedure?

Thanks

Hi!
Why use a tach ?? All engines with rings should be run in the same, slobbering rich. Nothing fancy about that!!!

I agree slobbering rich until the point at which you have to be careful how much you lean it out. The four stroke should be on the rich side so you have to coax it gently to the sweet spot. I have heard the tach makes this easier but i think I will go without it

I do use a tach when breaking in my Saito's. When you get finished breaking them in per the instructions, they purr like a kitten.
