All New Engines Need to Break-in

  1. On all 4 stroke engines, it is imperative that you cycle the engines through full warm up and then for about 15 minutes (half throttle). Let the engine cool down and repeat the same procedure 2 more times and check oil levels. During this process cycle the throttle and rev it up occasionally and back to idle. Once complete a load consisting of you driving the watercraft at varying throttle speeds in long durations and positions helps seat rings and wear in the cylinder and sleeve for a long life. I would not run wide open immediately to allow the rings to seat properly. Working the throttle up to 3/4 is fine when initially breaking in the engine. 
  2. Check the oil level immediately and fill up to the upper level if needed. 30 weight oil works great in the warmer climates. Adjust weight if necessary depending on season. It is common for a bit of oil to be burnt as it will bypass the rings as it breaks-in.
  3. Once you have a few hours on the engine, I normally fully drain all 4 strokes and refill them with new oil. Fresh oil is the key to engine longevity. Never run the engines on the low mark on the dipstick. Engine damage and seizing will occur. Protect the investment. Always check oil levels before and after every trip to maximize life on all size powerheads. Don't void warranties by being careless. No low oil shut-off switches are found on these small 4 strokes with the exception of the Honda GXV50 engine. The larger 5 hp and up vertical engines commonly have this feature and a much larger oil sump. The safe zone for all Honda and non-branded small 4 strokes is to check your oil everytrip, and top off after a day of hard run time.

What is the difference in the "Premium vs Ultimate Kits?"

Sample

(Premium) You Build Kit


● The leg needs to have the bracket bolt attached and all
    grease points lubricated.
● Customer will need to attach engine with 4 supplied
   stainless bolts, 1 throttle cable and nut, add oil based on
   Honda manual or oil filler stick (crosshatch) markings
   depending on engine setup, and adjust the twist throttle
   for proper idling.
● Twist throttle may need to be rotated and positioned so
    that the cable is not binding, which effects the opening
    and closing of the throttle position. I commonly take off
    the sheath and run my wires in the tube and the throttle
    cable is tie wrapped in one spot on the tiller arm.
● Red and green kill switch wires need to connect to the
   50cc engine with the same colors. Honda 35cc engines
   will need the black from the engine to the green/red as it
   doesn't matter and a second line provided with the
   waterproof  plug, is run to one of the mounting bolts of the
   engine. Connectors are provided.
________________________________________________
● Engine trim angle needs to be adjusted to boat transom.
   4 Hex bolts are supplied in the bracket. You should be 5-7      degrees trimmed upward so the bow rises and the kayak
    planes.
 ● Leg height needs to be adjusted so propeller sits about 2-
    4 inches below the bottom of the hull water line
    underneath in the non-turbulent water.
