Default Break IN for NIB 160 twin

Just getting ready to run and break in my Twin 160. What is the proper way to do this and what oil content is best for break in and all around running of this motor.

Just follow the instructions that came with the engine. You can't run it too rich for the first 20-40 minutes, before you try leaning it towards peak RPM.
