Default savage ruined?

Hey guys, a buddy of mine got a savage and instead of babysitting it for the three tanks that you're supposed to, he let it rip. After the third tank, it won't start well and it now shuts down after it's started. What do you think he ruined by not breaking it in properly? The piston and sleeve? what else? Also, if it is the p&s how much are they to replace and where can i get them? Thanks.

Nan, unless he went nuts and took it to the 300s, I dont think he really did too much damage to it.

Well I'm hoping it was running rich right?

Under normal conditions, it wont exactly "rip" after 3 tanks of gas unless he leaned it out already.

Any case.. reset everything.. clean out the engine etc..
And try again.

IF it doesnt work, get a compression guage and see if its ok.

That motor isnt that great, if its toast, get a nice OS 21 or something and have fun!

For someone that wants to be a moderator, you sure know what not to say. Think before you speak.

4 port mainly, All i hear is how horrible it is to break in, how often it doesnt like to run, and how it tears up gears. the 8 port is decent, but not much of an upgrade vs the 4port IMO.
