pulling during break in???

Recommended Posts

Going to finish 2nd hour where manuel says upto 3000 rpm,

now next 4-5 hours its say under 4000 rpm but no wedge-no ballast and to change rpms up-down..

during these hours ..can you pull a wakeboarder ..or should there be no riding during these hours..

even if its someone just riding at different speeds ..as its boring just driving around 4 hours ..........

and since my knee injury just to get pulled while running in engine and my knee at same time will do us both good

The factory is pretty adamant about not pulling anybody until you have your break-in service done. I have the Malibu dealership here in Washington and my rep made sure we all knew this rule.

i wasnt aware the break in service needed to be done before pulling, ok about the first 1 hour under 2000rpm,2nd hour under 3000rpm and next 4 hours under 4000rpm, and first service between 10-20 hours,,,,thought you could ride a couple hours beore oil and filter change

This topic has been talked about before. I didn't follow the break in procedure and the engine has 190 hrs and doesn't burn a drop of oil, leak down test is perfect and the compression is within 5% of each cylinder. What you don't want to do is keep it at the same rpm's for a long period of time, throttling into it from deep starts helps move the rings around initially. I wouldn't worry about pulling anyone at this point!
